The first call in the new Young Scientists' Program will focus on sustainability related projects in all areas of research. 

Proposals may be submitted in one of the following tracks:

Sustainability-related topics in the broadest sense.

Specific research questions could include renewable energies, climate research, agriculture, water and waste management; perhaps also civil construction, artificial intelligence and all the areas that make our life on earth more sustainable. 

We also invite projects that examine the notion of sustainability in history and modern society, cultural approaches to and the diversity of notions in the discourse on sustainability.

This also includes implications of the Covid-19 pandemic.
