Main Call Exploration Projects Social Cohesion

Main call for proposals for interdisciplinary research projects for the Grand Challenge Initiative Social Cohesion within the Exploration Projects funding program.

The overarching aim of the Exploration Projects Social Cohesion is to understand the global conditions, dynamics, perspectives and limitations of social cohesion and to demonstrate potential structures that could provide solutions for a future society characterized by sustainable success and stability. The funding program supports research on topics that demand new and innovative methods, questions, directions and approaches. In pursuing this goal, the Berlin University Alliance wants to explicitly show its support of groundbreaking projects that employ new approaches. An additional aim of the Exploration Projects is the development of larger, long-term research groups.

Up to 15 proposals will be selected and invited to a project pitch on August 7. The earliest start of funding is September 1, 2020 with a duration of 3 years. The funding volume is up to 450,000 euros per annum.
