RSF and FWF to support 4 Russian-Austrian projects

The Russian Science Foundation and the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) have announced 4 winners of their second joint call for proposals.

The review of the projects was carried out by both Russian and Austrian parties independently. The teams that will get funding obtained positive assessments from the reviewers in both countries.

The RSF grant will be 4-6 million Russian rubles annually for the period of 2020–2022.

“With regards to the winners, there are outstanding research projects in theoretical mathematics, quantum physics, catalytic chemistry and allergology. We hope that cooperation with Austrian partners in the framework of these 4 projects will set an example of successful cooperation of mutually complementary research groups in conducting unique studies of global significance”, commented these results Andrei Blinov, RSF Deputy Director General in charge of international cooperation. “We plan to announce the next joint RSF-FWF call in December 2020 for projects with funding period of FY 2022-2024”.

Since 2017, 9 joint projects have received support under the RSF-FWF funding program.

Detailed information about the call and the list of winners are presented in the "Calls for proposals".


The Austrian Science Fund (FWF) is Austria's central funding organization for basic research. The purpose of the FWF is to support the ongoing development of Austrian science and basic research at a high international level. In this way, the FWF makes a significant contribution to cultural development, to the advancement of our knowledge-based society, and thus to the creation of value and wealth in Austria.
