Europe and Global Challenges

Volkswagen Foundation

The funding initiative addresses the future challenges facing Europe in respect of climate change, migration, demographic change, and economic uncertainties. The aim is to inspire scholarly interest in such challenges beyond mere cooperation at the European level, and to promote collective supranational action on a global scale. The funding initiative targets mainly scholars in the humanities and the social sciences, but by no means excludes the possible involvement of other disciplines. Funding can be provided to support the constitution of interdisciplinary groups of international researchers comprising scholars from both European as well as non-European countries. It is a condition that, beside European scholars, the project involves researchers from at least one further region of the world.
