NRDI Office
The call aims to provide funding to experienced, talented researchers with an independent research group eager to continue their successful discovery research topic, having outstanding publication performance, and internationally acclaimed for their expertise in their field of science. The call is to promote cooperation between domestic research groups and their foreign partners, strengthen the international embeddedness of Hungarian science, and increase the international recognition of domestic researchers and research institutions.

Available budget

In the period 2020-2024, the NRDI Office allocates a combined budget of HUF 6.6 billion for the sub-programme of the thematic research projects (K_20) and the sub-programmes of thematic research projects based on Hungarian–Austrian or Hungarian–Slovenian bilateral cooperation (ANN_20 and SNN_20) from the NRDI Fund.

Amount of funding

According to the call, HUF 48 million for maximum 48 months can be requested for each project. If the duration of the project is shorter, requested funding should be decreased on a pro rata temporis basis.

Duration of the project

The maximum project duration is 48 months. Projects shall commence between 1 September and 1 December 2020. The earliest date for reporting costs is the project start date specified in the funding agreement.

Complying with its legal obligation, the NRDI Office enables applicants to submit their applications exclusively electronically. In this case, the documents required in Point “J” of the call to be submitted by regular mail / with electronic signature must be signed electronically as specified in Point “J” of the call and attached to the application on the Online Application Portal by the deadline for electronic submission, that is, by 24 February 2020 at 16:00 (CET).

Please note that all documents required to be submitted by regular mail/with electronic signature must be submitted in the same way, that is, all documents must be submitted to the NRDI Office either by regular mail or electronically provided with electronic signature.

In the case of regular mail, the submission is successful if the proposal was finalised electronically by the applicant and approved by the head of the host institution by the deadline for E-submission, and the documents required in Point “J” of the call were submitted by regular mail to the Customer Service of the NRDI Office by the deadline. In the case of electronic submission, the submission is successful if the proposal was finalised electronically by the applicant and approved by the head of the host institution by the deadline for E-submission, and the electronically signed versions of the documents required in Point “J” of the call were submitted by regular mail / with electronic signature through the Online Application Portal.

All applications must be submitted in English irrespective of the field of science. Applications in Hungarian are only allowed on the basis of prior approval (so-called Hungaricum permission, to be requested not later than 30 January 2020). In the case of K type proposals submitted in humanities and social sciences, bilingual research plans can be submitted, regardless of a Hungaricum permission.

Eligible applicants

Principal investigators can apply jointly with the host institution which has to be a Hungarian based

  • higher education institution, research centre, research institution, budgetary organ or an institution thereof having legal personality if it qualifies as a research organisation under the law;
  • business company which has at least two completed business years, maintains double-entry accounting and is not subject to small taxpayers’ itemized lump sum tax (KATA), if engaged in R&D activities; or
  • non-profit organisation if it qualifies as a research organisation under the law.

Throughout the entire implementation period the principal investigator shall be a worker of the host institution under an employment contract, civil service contract, works contract or other contract aimed at performing work.

No more than one proposal can be submitted to this call, and FK_20 or PD_20 proposals are not allowed in parallel. Current KKP grantees are not eligible either. Further K type grants may be won, however such proposals are not allowed to be submitted in the first 12 months of the implementation period.

K type projects can be implemented also by consortia.

Eligible objectives and actions

Project proposals can cover discovery research in any fields of science, regardless of thematic priority, if otherwise the application meets the conditions laid down in the call. Those actions are eligible which aim to achieve the key objectives developed on the basis of the research and work plan specified in the proposal, and set out in the research project plan submitted to the NRDI Office.

2020 winners of the “OTKA” call for thematic research projects (K_20)
The “OTKA” call for thematic research projects (K_20) was open until 24 February 2020 for promising researcher-initiated basic research projects in any field of science without thematic priorities.

This year 667 project proposals were submitted with a total funding request of HUF 24.45 billion.

The call for curiosity-driven research projects initiated by researchers in any field of science enabled 158 new projects to start this year with a total amount of funding of HUF 5.85 billion.

The project proposals were assessed by expert panels and scientific councils based on anonymous peer reviews. Taking into account the rankings compiled by professional bodies for each scientific field, the scientific performance of the applicants in previous years and the significance of the project proposals from a policy perspective, the deputy secretary of state for innovation, vested with this responsibility by the minister for science policy coordination, decided to grant support to 158 projects in the following breakdown by scientific field:

To ensure value-based professional evaluation of proposals arriving in large quantities from the fields of discovery and applied research and innovation, to assess professional reports of funded projects and to prepare policy opinions, the NRDI Office intends to expand its expert pool in all fields of expertise.

Professionals who have registered in the database of the NRDI Office can become responsible contributors, as independent peer-reviewers, to the evaluation process in which the professional quality, novelty content and commercialisation perspectives of the proposals as compared to the requested funding should be assessed as core considerations.

The registration process can be initiated through the registration form of the NRDI Office’s website. Registration is continuously open.

Requested data within the expert registration form include:

  • personal data, contact details (necessary for contracting review assignments);
  • classification of professional skills and competencies and research areas (to get review invitations fine-tuned to your field of expertise);
  • topics of the previously reviewed proposals;
  • present and past jobs, interest networks (in order to pre-screening of conflicts of interest in a given rview assignment), education, scientific titles, most important publications and intellectual works demonstrating your professional experience;
  • language skills.

Professionals once registered in the database of experts may be invited by the NRDI Office to review submitted proposals, to assess professional reports of funded projects and to contribute to policy opinions.

Each proposal is reviewed by several independent experts at the same time. Experts selected from the database to review proposals, to assess professional reports and facilitate expert opinions will be contracted by the NRDI Office on a case-by-case basis. When concluding such a contract experts must declare that the review assignment is not obstructed by any conflict of interest whatsoever. Depending on the competition type, written expert reviews must be prepared in 15-28 work days and submitted electronically via the online review portal of the NRDI Office.

The NRDI Fund Programme Strategy for the year 2019 has been endorsed by Government decree 1622/2019. (X.31.).
The timing and the budget of European-financed non-refundable and refundable RDI schemes under the EDIOP (GINOP) and CCHOP (VEKOP) programmes have been approved by the Government within the Annual Development Framework Programme, upon the proposal of the NRDI Office. Pursuant to the Government Decree 106/2018. (VI. 15.) on the amendment of certain Government Decrees related to development policy due to the Government being restructured, the 2nd priorities of the EDIOP/GINOP and CCHOP/VEKOP (i.e. research, technology development and innovation) operational programmes are commanded to the political responsibility of the Ministry of Innovation and Technology (MIT) instead of the National Research, Development and Innovation Office as from 16 June 2018.

The chart below shows the calls for proposals and their budget relating to the main target areas, broken down by the sources of funding and the years:

  • Corporate/Business RDI
  • Excellence programmes for institutions
  • Development of research infrastructure
  • Excellence programmes for researchers, and
  • Promotion of international cooperation programmes.
