Funding opportunities

Below we collect calls for proposals, grants, and other ways to fund research and innovation that may help us to accomplish our mission.

The mission of computational audiology (Why)

  • Improve the quality of life for all people that suffer from hearing loss by applying computational approaches
  • Improve hearing healthcare for hard-of-hearing people (>500 million people)
  • Improve the efficacy of hearing devices and audiological interventions

So let’s set steps towards meaningful impact. If you know about new funding opportunities give us a notice via

Current funding opportunities (what)

  • The Hearing Industry Research Consortium (IRC)  just announced its 2023 request for proposals(RfP) for research documenting and measuring indirect benefits of well-fitted hearing-aids, and fostering a better understanding of the factors that mediate these benefits. The funding pool for this RFP is 300,000 US Dollars, and the time period for execution of projects under this RFP is 2-3 years from 1st January 2024. Proposals for projects of two years duration are preferred. It is envisaged that one or two project proposals will be funded.
    • Detailed descriptions of the application procedure, the guidelines for research under this scheme, and the proposed research area can be downloaded and also found on the IRC website. The deadline for submission is August 1, 2023.
    • Questions can be sent to any of the IRC members listed on the website or using the Contact Form on the website.
    • The Hearing Industry Research Consortium (IRC) is made up of the heads of research from the top hearing aid manufacturers in the world, which include GN Hearing, Oticon, Sonova, WS Audiology and Starkey Hearing Technologies. The IRC was created to have a non-competitive, mutually agreed upon research agenda benefiting the hearing aid industry, its customers and end users.

  • COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding organisation for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and beyond and enable researchers and innovators to grow their ideas in any science and technology field by sharing them with their peers. COST Actions are bottom-up networks with a duration of four years that boost research, innovation and careers.
  • EIT Health is the ‘knowledge and innovation community’ (KIC) of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). The EIT is made up of various KICs who each focus on a different sector, or area, of innovation. The idea behind the EIT KICs is that innovation flourishes best when the right people are brought together to share expertise.
  • Request for Information: Broaden the Benefits of AI/ML Technologies to Reduce Health Disparities and Inequities and Enhance the Diversity of the AI/ML Workforce
  • Support for existing data repositories to align with FAIR and TRUST principles and evaluate usage, utility, and impact. The goal of this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) is to strengthen NIH-funded biomedical data repositories to better enable data discoverability, interoperability, and reuse by aligning with the FAIR and TRUST principles and using metrics to measure their effectiveness. This NOSI provides an opportunity for existing repositories to increase ”FAIR”-ness and “TRUST”-worthiness to improve their usage, utility, and impact throughout the data resource lifecycle.
  • Administrative Supplements to Support Enhancement of Software Tools for Open Science. This Notice announces the continuing availability of administrative supplements NOT-OD-20-073 to active awards that focus on biomedical software development or have a significant software development component. The goal of these supplements is to invest in research software tools with recognized value in a scientific community to enhance their impact by leveraging best practices in software development and advances in cloud computing.
