Information and Communication Technology 2019 is the fifth project call within the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF) ICT Programme. It invites researchers and scientists at universities and non-university research institutions in Vienna, including those moving to Vienna, who want to conduct a multi-annual (2 to 4 years) cutting-edge research project in the field of ICT and its application in other fields. Projects should strive to improve the understanding of substantial current scientific research questions (disciplinary, interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary) in the field of ICT with potential medium term economic or social benefit. A total of € 5.5 million will be dedicated to this call. The funding range per project is € 200,000 to € 800,000.
The deadline for the submission of the short proposals was in January 2019. In total, 96 Short Proposals were submitted and 26 were selected by an international expert panel in a jury meeting in Vienna in mid-February.
The deadline for the invited applicants to submit a Full Proposal was May 16, 2019. The full proposals are currently under review. The international jury will make the funding decision in the beginning of October 2019.
