Corona Crisis and Beyond – Perspectives for Science, Scholarship and Society

The Volkswagen Foundation supports research projects from all disciplines in connection to the Corona crisis.

Scope of funding

This call is not confined to any particular subject area and invites applications from life, natural and engineering sciences as well as social sciences and the humanities. It includes two funding opportunities:

  • Small Grants: Support for individual or cooperative projects to test or develop new scientific approaches, methods and/or theories.
  • Additional modules within the context of currently funded research projects: As an alternative option, grant recipients of projects currently funded by the Foundation can – in addition to the grants already made – extend their respective projects by an additional module that addresses the above mentioned challenges.

Applicants may apply for a total funding amount of EUR 120,000 for a term of up to 18 months for individual or cooperation projects involving up to 3 partners. The same conditions apply for additional modules.
