In the framework of the Lead Agency agreement concluded on 10 April 2012 between the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and the Hungarian Scientific Research Fund (OTKA), and continued by the National Research, Development and Innovation Office as the legal successor of OTKA, this year Hungarian–Austrian research groups had the opportunity to get funding for joint basic research projects under the Call for thematic research projects implemented in international Hungarian–Austrian or Hungarian–Slovenian cooperation (ANN_20, SNN_20).

The proposals are submitted and assessed in accordance with the Lead Agency principle: if the amount requested by the Hungarian partner exceeds the amount requested by the Austrian partner, the assessment is carried out by the NRDI Office. If, however, the foreign partner requests more funding, the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) receives and evaluates the joint project proposal. Any funding from the NRDI Fund is subject to the decision of the minister for science policy coordination (hereinafter: “Sponsor”), so even if a Hungarian partner is assessed positively by FWF, the approval of the Sponsor is still needed for the joint project to be funded.

Based on the proposal by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) as evaluating Lead Agency and the decision of the Hungarian Sponsor dated 25 August 2020, two thematic research projects implemented in Hungarian–Austrian cooperation (ANN_20) have been selected for funding.

The results of the other research projects implemented in Hungarian–Austrian cooperation, that are assessed by the NRDI Office, is expected to be announced later, following the decision of the Austrian co-financing partner organisation.
