Call for Applications Research Stimulation and Valorisation Fund FASoS

The faculty wants to encourage research that strengthens the faculty’s research
profile and the valorisation through the Research Stimulation and Valorisation
Fund (RSF). RSF grants may be used for short research trips, field work,
acquiring data, language editing of publications, the organisation of workshops,
etc. Submit your application by 31 January 2014.

Proposed RSF
activities are assessed by the OTO. Decisions are taken by the FB, after
consultation of the OTO. The OTO applies the following criteria:

Proposals must be related to specific research activities (publications,
preparing grant proposals, building networks) or another activity clearly
strengthening our research profile.
– They must be aimed at the initiation of
new or the valorization of existing research. Proposals should focus on a clear
additional effort going beyond regular research activities.
– In the case of
scientific publications, language editing proposals will be preferred over
requests for supporting translations, and leading publishers / journals over
others. Peer reviewed international publications with highly reputed journals or
publishing houses are viewed most favourably.
– Acquiring funding from other
sources, so that the RSF is used as matching money together with other sources
is also viewed positively.

There are a number of activities which are
excluded from RSF funding:
– Grants cannot be used for hiring staff (with the
exception of student assistants) or for reducing the teaching load. Student
assistants have to be current students at the UM.
– The RSF should not be
used to cover funding gaps in ongoing research projects. The RSF wants to
trigger new research activities, instead of providing stopgap assistance in
existing projects. Exemptions are possible for valorization activities.

Conference visits are excluded, unless linked with some other research
activities (e.g. doing interviews, establishing a scholarly network, author
workshops). Acceptance of the proposed paper has to be secured before submitting
to the RSF.
– The OTO / FB will not support the language editing of
publications for which a contract / acceptance by a journal has not yet been

Who can apply? What are the conditions?
All staff members of
the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences can apply. You may submit one
application per year. Grants do not exceed €2,500.
