To encourage cooperation between researchers from different institutions, NOSTER offers two types of funding in 2022. As in previous years, there is funding available for organising conferences or symposiums (max. €1,500 per conference). The application criteria for this type of funding can be found here. Applications should be submitted to the NOSTER office by e-mail before 1 October 2022. A decision will be made before 1 November 2022.

In addition, in the next couple of years, NOSTER will award three starting grants of €10,000 each to support a workgroup that will prepare a major research funding application related to the concept of religious imaginaries. The application criteria for this type of funding can be found here, but they will be updated soon. The (new) application deadline for the first round will be in Spring 2023; the specific date will be announced here before September 2022.
