The Flexpool mechanism of iDiv is explicitly designed to promote integrative activities among scientists within the iDiv consortium. The Flexpool Support Fund pursues the same aims as the Flexpool mechanism and extends them to the wider iDiv community.
In 2021, two calls will be available with the following deadlines:
Call #1: 03 February 2021
Call #2: 14 April 2021
Through the FP Support Fund mechanism, costs eligible within the DFG funding regulations can be requested; the total costs for a given project should not exceed 10k EUR. Strong justifications for higher costs will be considered.
Examples for potential funding items are
• Student or research assistants (Hiwis)
• Travel costs (e.g., conferences/ workshops/ inquiries/ meetings with project partners/ lab visits)
• Consumables (e.g., study costs)
• Small equipment
All iDiv scientists, including full and associate members, post- and doctoral researchers, are eligible to apply.
Proposals need to be submitted as a single PDF-file to the member relations officer at iDiv, Dr. Christa Genz (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than 03 February 2021 or 14 April 2021, respectivelybefore the evaluation process starts.
