MED Call – Impetus

The goals of the call are:

  •  Funding of innovative projects with an impulse character for the submission of follow-up projects to national or international funding bodies (e.g. FWF, FFG, Horizon Europe etc.). This includes, among others, pilot or feasibility studies or "Proof of Principle" projects.
  • Funding for young researchers (with a completed doctorate) and for re-entering researchers (with a completed doctorate), who want to continue their research after a research activity (e.g. maternity leave) after an interruption due to life phases.

All employees of the Faculty of Medicine in a valid employment relationship with the JKU as well as physicians from university hospitals/clinical institutes with a completed PhD, Dr. scient. med or Dr. univ. med. with a  publication record in the research field are eligible to apply.

Funding sum is 50,000 Eur for two years project duration. If external funding, based on the Impetus project, is obtained from a public funding body, the university hospital/research institute will receive another € 25,000 as a research award, which must be used for research.

Next call planned for June 2023.
