HEiKA Calls 2016

On 18 May 2016 HEiKA is coming up with two different calls.

Evaluation of HEiKA in March/April 2016

Following the overall positive evaluation of HEiKA the Research Board and the Board of Directors decided on some major changes following the reviewers' recommendations.

The previous Research Bridge Nature, Technology and Society (NTS) will not be continued as before, but will undergo a fundamental adjustment becoming a new investigative Research Bridge - HEiKAexplore (see also below).

Consequently there will be no call for project proposals within the scope of NTS with the forthcoming HEiKA call 2016.

If you had planed to submitt a so called across-Research Bridge project proposal, involving NTS, it can be assigned to one of the four remaining Research Bridges AIP, MTH, OE or SB and submitted.


Further information also in our current HEiKA Newsletter [PDF 112 KB].


New Research Bridge HEiKAexplore

supersedes the previous Research Bridge Nature, Technology and Society (NTS)!

Starting with a call for topic outlines the new Research Bridge is introduced together with the upcoming HEiKA call for joint projects.
