Funding Framework NEXT - Suggestions for topics

In its "NEXT" funding framework, the Volkswagen Foundation aims to address new or hitherto little-researched topics and research approaches that, on the one hand, exhibit a high degree of knowledge potential and future relevance, but, on the other hand, are currently not or not sufficiently pursued scientifically. The funding framework is the overarching umbrella for various calls on different thematic areas which are all intended to stimulate the scientific landscape and to direct the focus to what could be "next” as the title of the framework indicates.

The foundation would like to develop calls for proposals in the funding framework in close exchange with the scientific community. We therefore welcome suggestions and proposals for upcoming calls.
