This program reflects their joint commitment to increase opportunities for emerging West African scholars, people who are transforming ideas into active solutions to the challenges facing not only the region but also throughout the globe. West Africa, like other parts of the world, is rich in intellectual resources. Universities are home to scholarly communities of scientists, historians, artists, and social scientists. Young scholars in the region are carrying out innovative, cutting-edge research in agriculture, technology, the humanities, and a wide range of other fields. They are poised to deliver innovative solutions to challenges posed by the changing climate, demographic shifts, and cultural transformations that mark our times. The Ideas Matter Doctoral Fellowship program will support the research initiatives of these young scholars


  • The Ideas Matter Fellowship is open to doctoral students under age 35 who are based in West African institutions of higher education, for research on the continent.
  • Priority will be given to research projects focusing on women, technology, and entrepreneurship.

 International network grant for the SDGs


This call for proposals is being funded within the framework of “Intsam”, a collaboration among the Swedish Energy Agency, Formas, Forte, the Swedish Research Council and Vinnova, and has been developed together with Sida. The call aims to create better conditions for international research collaboration that can eventually help to achieve the SDGs. More specifically, the call aims to give Swedish researchers the opportunity to establish and develop networks together with researchers outside Europe to formulate new common project ideas. The planned collaboration should be jointly developed by all network partners, focus on mutually identified needs and based on equal collaboration. The funding is intended to be used for networking activities only, not research and innovation projects. The goal is for researchers in these networks to be able to apply for grants for joint research and innovation projects in national and international calls. Collaboration must take place with researchers in non-EU countries, but the call has no other geographical requirements. Collaborative initiatives can be initiated, for example, with countries that have been previous beneficiaries of aid and for which collaboration must build new forms of sustainable cooperation, or with low- and lower-middle-income countries that face the greatest challenges in implementing the agenda. The focus of the call is network projects within the areas of responsibility of all participating funders.


  • The main applicant must have obtained a PhD degree by the time the call closes
  • Participating researchers must also have obtained their PhD degree by the time the call closes. Other staff involved in the project do not need to have a PhD degree

  • Medium-term research collaboration (up to 5 years) on a complex, current topic in mixed teams of at least 3 to a maximum of 5 researchers (at least one-third of the underrepresented gender, with the gender ratio in the team being defined as a criterion relevant to the decision during the assessment)
  • Interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary, an innovative research collaboration that deepens or consolidates a topic
  • Integration of young scientists in managerial positions
  • Description of an internationalization strategy to connect to the international scientific community


  • A team of 3-5 internationally outstanding scientists from all scientific disciplines 1 , especially from the humanities, social sciences, and cultural studies, form a research group at Austrian research institutions. Participation in a maximum of one research group is possible in addition to the current number of three FWF projects.
  • Researchers working abroad with an additional 25% connection to an Austrian research institution can participate in an FG 2.
  • A scientist acts as a coordinator in the research group.
  • The formal application is made by the Austrian research institution: all Austrian research institutions are eligible to apply; there is no limit to the number of applications that can be submitted by a research institution. A research institution can therefore submit several applications.

Funding: Maximum EUR 1,500,000 (reference value EUR 300,000 / year); finance these costs: personnel costs for your own position and employees (PhDs, postdocs), material, equipment, travel, other costs, and 5% general project costs. The deadline for application is September 30, 2022
