The netidee Call 2023 has started!

With a total of one million euros, netidee, the Internet Foundation's funding campaign, is once again supporting innovative projects and theses at universities on the topic of the Internet.

Projects for the innovative further development and versatile use of the Internet in Austria will be funded. In addition, this year projects are also being funded to maintain and further develop existing, successful initiatives.

All funded project results are to be published under open source or Creative Commons licenses. In this way, the entire Internet community can benefit. The entire funding process takes place online, from the application to the disbursement of funds.

Up to 50,000 euros in funding is possible per project. Students can secure a grant of up to 10,000 euros. In addition, two special prizes of 3,000 euros each are awarded to funded projects.

The Martin-Prager-Integration-Award was created in memory of the deceased member of the board of trustees of the Internet Foundation KR Ing. Martin Prager. The special prize is awarded to that funded project that best aims to strengthen digital participation as well as the use of the Internet for integrative purposes.

"Articifial Intelligence" (AI) is currently one of the most discussed topics in digitalization. We are looking for projects that contribute to the development of AI. Namely, projects that aim to increase the use of open source AI or contribute to the democratization of AI in the sense of increasing accessibility to AI models. Awareness raising about existing intransparencies of AI models and projects to increase transparency are also in focus. A special prize will be awarded to an outstanding project on the topic.

Submissions can be made online until July 10, 2023.
