The call aims to provide funding to experienced, talented and internationally acclaimed researchers and research group leaders, having outstanding publication performance and eager to further develop their successful discovery research topic. The call is to promote the progress of scientific excellence, and thus increase the international recognition of Hungarian researchers and research institutions.

Available budget

In the period 2022-2026, the Ministry of Innovation and Technology allocates a combined budget of HUF13.5 billion from the NRDI Fund for the programme of the thematic research projects (K_22), the young researchers’ and postdoctoral excellence programmes (FK_22, PD_22) and the programmes of thematic research projects based on Hungarian–Austrian or Hungarian–Slovenian bilateral cooperation (ANN_22 and SNN_22).

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. Apart from remuneration and related taxes payable by the employer, certain tangible costs are also eligible, as well as overhead costs up to 10%, and costs of acquisition of scientific information and Open Access publication up to 10% of the direct project costs. The implementation of K type projects can involve participating researchers, technical staff and students.

Duration of the project

The maximum project duration is 48 months. Projects shall commence between 1 September and 1 December 2022. The earliest date for reporting costs is the project start date specified in the funding agreement.

Submission of applications

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 2022 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 to be submitted by regular mail / with electronic signature have been submitted 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 1 February 2022). In the case of K type proposals submitted in humanities and social sciences, bilingual research plans may 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 institution or an institution thereof having legal personality that qualifies as a research and knowledge-dissemination organisation under Commission Regulation (EU) No 651/2014;
  • 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) that qualifies as a research and knowledge-dissemination organisation under Commission Regulation (EU) No 651/2014;
  • non-profit organisation that qualifies as a research and knowledge-dissemination organisation under Commission Regulation (EU) No 651/2014.

Throughout the entire implementation period the principal investigator shall be employed by 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_22 or PD_22 or ANN_22 or SNN_22 proposals are not allowed in parallel. Grantees of KKP projects with starting date after 31 December 2018 are not eligible either. Further K type grants may be awarded, 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.

2022 winners of the “OTKA” call for thematic research projects (K_22)
The “OTKA” call for thematic research projects (K_22) was open until 24 February 2022 for promising researcher-initiated basic research projects in any field of science without thematic priorities.

This year 613 project proposals were submitted with a total funding request of HUF 24.11 billion.

The call for curiosity-driven research projects initiated by researchers in any field of science enabled 177 new projects to start this year with a total amount of funding of HUF 7 billion.

Project proposals were reviewed by anonymous reviewers against the criteria indicated in the call notice, with the involvement of expert panels and specialised scientific councils. The Deputy Secretary of State for Innovation, acting on a proposal from the councils responsible for decision preparation and as designated by the Minister for Science Policy Coordination, has decided to support 177 research projects, distributed by discipline as follows:

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.
