Research Fund

Austrian Research Fund for Herpetology (ÖFFH)

Schönbrunn Zoo and the Austrian Herpetological Society (ÖGH) award 5000 Euros from their research fund every year for basic research on amphibians and reptiles. A connection to Austria is a prerequisite for funding, i.e. the research focuses on native amphibians and reptiles, or the project is conducted by an Austrian researcher or at an Austrian research institution.

The funds can be awarded to one project or be divided among several. Applications can be submitted until 30 September for the following year. For the detailed submission guidelines see the ÖFFH guidelines.
