In these exceptionally demanding circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Croatian Science Foundation, as part of its mission, will support research groups that are able to solve the greatest research challenges in order to save human lives and protect health and well-being of the population of the Republic of Croatia.

These thematic Calls will fund fundamental and applied research that creates new and improves existing knowledge on infectious diseases caused by corona viruses as well as research that explores social aspects of the pandemic and the effect of the pandemic on the education system.

Two thematic calls have been published so far: 

 – Infectious Diseases Caused by Corona Viruses and the Social and Educational Aspects of the Pandemic (IP-CORONA-2020-04), which saw 11 projects selected for funding.

 – Health, Economic and Educational Aspects of the COVID-19 Pandemic (IP-CORONA-2020-12)
