To promote young scientists, the URPP Evolution has regularly called for research proposals in the wider field of evolutionary biology. Proposals could be submitted by PhD students and postdocs working in UZH research groups that either were members of the URPP Evolution or had applied for membership. We particularly encouraged applicants to hand in proposals involving an interdisciplinary approach to evolutionary questions. The funding per proposal was limited to CHF 20'000. The purpose of these calls was to fund innovative pilot projects necessary for subsequent larger grant applications. The proposals were reviewed and rated by the Steering Committee of the URPP Evolution.
