Open Call: The Slovak Academy of Sciences’ IMPULZ 2022 Programme

On 1 June 2022, the Slovak Academy of Sciences (SAS) opened a call for applications for the IMPULZ 2022 grant programme.

Internationally renowned scientists and highly talented young researchers will once again have the opportunity to pursue their scientific endeavours in Slovakia under conditions approaching those of a prestigious European grant. Selected projects can apply for funding of up to €160,000 per year. The call is open until 31 August 2022. The projects are expected to start in March 2023.

The IMPULZ Programme aims to improve the excellence of the Slovak Academy of Sciences (SAS) and its research institutes by recruiting internationally recognized scientists and highly talented young researchers either from abroad or within Slovakia. The task for the excellent scientists will be to create and manage their own research groups which will work on new research directions in line with the current world trends. The programme should improve the excellence, internationalization, inter-disciplinarity and competitiveness of SAS in the European Research Area, among other things, by increasing its chances to receive the prestigious European grants.

The full wording of the call text is available here.
