Funding opportunities from international foundations

Funding opportunities for research and innovation are many and varied. In addition to the main national (in Italian) and EU programmes, Sapienza lecturers and researchers can access international funds created by foundations, public bodies, private organisations, non-profit organisations, etc.

Depending on the programme or body, the calls may fund  individual projects or collaborations,  may be open to experienced researchers or researchers in the early stages of their scientific careers.
