NGI - Funding opportunities and much more!

This edition of the NGI newsflash focusses on the support offered by NGI that goes beyond the €75 m financing – 80 percent of which, that’s €60 million - is distributed to innovators. All innovators who receive funding also receive mentoring and guidance to make their vision a reality. As a community committed to the European values of trust, security, privacy and inclusion – here are even more ways – above and beyond the financing – that we’re working to build an Internet of humans.

Ideas and practices to overcome the impact of Covid-19 together

The Coronavirus emergency has given rise to a series of actions aimed at finding solutions to support communities in the immediate future: companies convert their production to make masks or gowns; crowdfunding platforms launch fundraising campaigns to equip hospitals with new intensive care units; innovation players launch calls to research cutting-edge diagnostic and monitoring projects and devices. However, there are still few actions designed to start planning, or implementing, concrete activities to support the restart: this second perspective is undoubtedly more complicated not only to imagine, but also to transform into concrete action.

Can you offer us something too? Come and share your ideas with us!

Project at Utrecht University 

The goal of the project, funded by the ERC, will be to identify the developmental origins and psychological underpinnings of adolescents' eco-friendly behavior.

5 year project, conducted in the developmental Psychology programme at Utrecht Univeristy.

The Postdoc will examine whether and how adolescents’ eco-friendly behavior is rooted in their need for autonomy and peer status and the developmental emergence of environmental skepticism in adolescents, in order to inform global pro-environmental policies (e.g. educational programmes, campaigns) and help tailor them to adolescents.

Predoctoral research fellows, conscientific assistants...

The Max Planck Institute for Human Development is dedicated to the study of human development and education. Researchers from various disciplines – including psychology, education, sociology and medicine – work together on interdisciplinary projects at the Berlin Institute. The research questions they examine include decision making, the influence of the educational institution on student development and learning processes, the interaction between behavior and brain function and how this changes throughout life, how human emotions change in a historical context and how they have influenced the course of history itself.


It is an ERA-NET project which brings together most of the regional and national funding organizations in Europe (NRFOs).

The HBP Call topic is aimed at deepening the study of the human brain, in connection with information technologies for the development of new treatments for brain disorders.
