The Volkswagen Foundation

The Volkswagen Foundation aims at advancing the sciences and the humanities: stimulating, interdisciplinary, and transboundary.

Germany’s largest independent funder of basic researc 

Experiment! – In search of bold research ideas

  • area of research: science and engineering, life sciences
  • Region: Germany
  • type of funding: research projects
  • up to 120,000 Euro (flexible use)
  • up to 18 months
  • postdoctoral researchers and professors in Germany, optionally international partners
  • short application; anonymized jury selection plus lottery (test phase)
  • additional benefits: funding for communication of science and research

Deadline: July 5, 2017

Deadline: August 1, 2018

Deadline: August 1, 2

Aim

The exploration of exceptionally daring new ideas is not yet really a focal point of the research agenda in Germany, as far as facing challenges and radically transforming common wisdom are concerned. This often requires to establish counterintuitive hypotheses as well as unconventional methodologies or technologies, and to focus on entirely new research approaches. The Volkswagen Foundation’s funding initiative 'Experiment!' tries to pave the way for fundamentally new research topics even though the outcome may be contingent. A concept failure as well as unexpected findings are an acceptable result.

Scope of Funding

The initiative addresses researchers in science and engineering as well as in the life sciences (including immediately neighboring disciplines in the behavioral sciences), who want to put a potentially transformative and risky research idea to the test. They are given the opportunity to demonstrate preliminary evidence for a concept’s potential during an exploratory phase which is limited to 18 months and up to 120,000 Euro. Towards the end of a grant the projects’ progress will be presented at the Foundation’s 'Forum Experiment!'.

The Volkswagen Foundation is dedicated to the support of the humanities and social sciences as well as science and technology in higher education and research.

Original – isn't it?" New Options for the Humanities and Cultural Studies

  • area of research: humanities and cultural studies, theoretical social sciences
  • Region: Germany
  • type of funding: research projects; funding of a teaching substitute
  • up to 80.000 or 150.000 Euro (depending on funding line)
  • 12 or 18 months (depending on funding line)
  • post-doctoral researchers/project teams in Germany; possible to include international cooperation partners
  • short application; anonymized selection procedure
  • additional benefits: funding for communication of science and research

Objectives

"Originality" is a crucial criterion of quality in the humanities and cultural studies. The specific nature of the themes belonging to the humanities and cultural sciences, though, makes it extremely difficult to say precisely what constitutes "original", "new", or "innovative". It may encompass anything that contradicts the established knowledge or generally accepted intuition; or just as well the development of a new approach to research, a new hypothesis, a new theory, observation of a new phenomenon, and discovery of knowledge gaps.

With this new funding offer the Foundation wishes to encourage scholars in the humanities and cultural studies to embark on projects of groundbreaking originality. Funding will be made available for initial exploration of the research idea.

Next Deadline: Presumably before the End of 2017
