Fast-track call for ‘Taproot’ projects

Within this call, we invite fast-track proposals for seed money for integrative research projects contributing to iDiv’s ‘Taproot’ initiative. Specifically, we are looking for projects that need to strengthen their integrative potential and enhance the recognition and added value of their synergies. Projects can, but need not, fit into an existing or already defined ‘Taproot’, but must show potential to develop integration and depth in a research area core to the central iDiv mission.   

Consumable funds are offered to foster any type of interaction that is needed to develop the project further (e.g., kick-off andregular meetings, seminars, workshops, lab visits, etc.), and are expected not to exceed 10k€; strong justifications for higher costs will be considered. Personnel costs and catering services are not included in this call.

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. Joanna Hanzel ( before the evaluation process starts.
