The Ministry of Foreign Affairs regrets to inform potential applicants for research grants that due to the outbreak of civil war in Ethiopia and the deteriorating security situation in the country, applications for research projects in Ethiopia will not be considered in the 2022 application round. Should the situation improve it may be possible to include Ethiopia in a future call.

In this updated version of the Call and in electronic application system SurveyMonkey Apply, Ethiopia has been removed as an eligible country for research.
