Tuesday, 20 October 2020

We are pleased to announce the third ranking list in the MOZART international bilateral call for Polish-Austrian research projects, organised in partnership with the Austrian Science Fund (Fonds zur Förderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung, FWF). Our new winner is Dr Krzysztof Szade from the Jagiellonian University.

Ranking list

Dr Krzysztof Szade will receive a total of 1,596,300 PLN in funding for his research project devoted to Identifying the Niches of Hematopoietic and Leukaemic Stem Cells. The objective is to explore and describe the bone marrow niches of hematopoietic and leukaemic stem cells, which will allow potential new treatment targets against leukaemic stem cells to be identified. More about the project: here.

To find out more about our previous winners, Professor Jerzy Kochanowski, Dr Tomasz Goliński, and Dr hab. Karol Nartowski, go here and here.

Grants awarded under the scheme can go towards the costs of remuneration for the research team, including scholarships for under- and post-graduate students, the purchase or manufacturing of research equipment and for other costs crucial to the research project. With a total budget of 5.5 million PLN, the call was targeted at Polish research teams working with Austrian partners. To qualify as a principal investigator in the Polish team, applicants need to hold at least a PhD degree; the project must take 24 or 36 months to complete. The merit-based evaluation of submitted proposals is based on guidelines adopted by the FWF. The terms and conditions of the call set by the FWF can be found in the documents of the “Stand-Alone Projects” programme and, for clinical trials, in “Programme Clinical Research” (KLIF).

The MOZART call was held in accordance with the Lead Agency Procedure (“LAP”) and proposals were accepted on an ongoing basis until 21 February 2020. The results are announced within 12 months from the submission of the domestic proposal, which means that successive ranking lists will be gradually published here.
