Humboldt Research Award

The award is granted in recognition of a researcher's entire achievements to date to academics whose fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights have had a significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in the future. Award winners are invited to spend a period of up to one year cooperating on a long-term research project with specialist colleagues at a research institution in Germany. Nominations may be submitted by established academics in Germany or by award winners of the Humboldt Foundation working abroad, provided that the nomination is made jointly with a colleague working in Germany. Direct applications are not accepted. The award is valued at €60,000. Selection Committee meetings are held twice a year – currently at the beginning of spring and in early autumn.

James S. McDonnell Foundation: Collaborative Activity Awards supports interdisciplinary research in 3 areas: Bridging Brain, Mind, and Behavior; Complex Systems; and Brain Cancer Research. These awards support study panels, research networks or other ways of pushing work on mind/brain forward outside the usual mechanism of investigator-initiated research proposals. The collaborative award process is not used to support meetings, conferences, etc.
