Am I eligible to apply if I am already the principal investigator of other FWF projects?
Yes. In the case of the START programme, you are eligible to apply regardless of other projects that are currently ongoing or for which funding has been requested. However, the START project described in the START application must differ significantly from the other projects. In this case, it is a good idea to include a letter in which you explain how the proposed START project differs from the other projects that are currently ongoing or for which funding has been requested. If your START project is approved for funding, you are only allowed to serve as the principal investigator of one other project in addition to the START project for the first three years after the START project has been approved.
