The Change! Research Groups funding program from the Volkswagen Foundation is designed for scientists from all disciplines who have realised the potential of non-academic sources of knowledge for their research on transformation processes. The Volkswagen Foundation is looking for research personalities who partner up with actors from societal practice to develop knowledge, methods, and scenarios for transformation pro-cesses through joint research, initiate such processes in society and anchor transdisciplinary research in science. Funding are available for research groups:

  • Research groups are being offered for thematically qualified scientists in permanent positions. The funding opportunity is designed to give long-term structural impetus to the research institutions. Thus, it is not open for scientists who retire during the funding period. Personnel costs for up to two scientific staff members, other recurring and non-recurring costs, and travel costs can be requested for the research groups. The amount of funding is up to 1.3 m. €

Funding is available for up to 5 years and an additional 10% may be applied to indirect costs.

Applications close on April 24, 2024.
