Funding Focus: Forum

The category “Forum” brings together instruments that support collaborative research that follows a coherent research programme addressing an overall main topic over a set funding duration. To achieve this, these projects provide open platforms designed to facilitate scholarly discussion and dialogue, which enables them to be relatively open with regard to the work programme and proposed research methods. The proposal is not required to describe the structure of the proposed work in detail with respect to research content, duration or personnel. Evaluation of proposals focuses on the overall research idea, the anticipated knowledge gain and the applicants’ research and leadership expertise.
