Central selection criteria for the funding format "Workshops": interdisciplinarity, academic quality and originality on an international level
A funding opportunity for any kind of academic event, ranging from smaller gatherings like colloquia to larger meetings like conferences that discuss topics and questions in a broader interdisciplinary framework. The format is open to academics of all disciplines, based in Germany or abroad, who have at least completed a doctorate; they can apply with their idea and, if successful, hold an event at ZiF with an interdisciplinary and (preferably) international group.
ZiF Workshops are discussion-oriented, academic events of up to 14 days. Besides an infrastructure and organisational support, ZiF provides funding of up to 15,000 € for these events.
Applications can be submitted by scholars based in Germany or abroad; as a minimum requirement, they must have completed their doctoral studies. Proposals can be submitted by one person or a team of up to four people. For teams of more than one applicant, their disciplinary backgrounds should reflect the interdisciplinarity of the proposal.
The application has to clearly demonstrate that the proposed interdisciplinary collaboration is required by the topic at hand; the mere involvement of different disciplines does not suffice. ZiF also encourages international participation.
Timeline: There is no fixed deadline for applications; they are accepted throughout the year. However, they have to be submitted at least 10 months prior to the proposed event. Dates should be coordinated with ZiF Group and Conference Support (firstname.lastname@example.org) in advance.
The application should be submitted in the language of the event (English or German).
