1) University affiliates are defined in UG 2002 §94. Should you be a research grant holder please provide confirmation to that effect via e-mail.

2) If the FWF is named as a funder in the article it is responsible for Open Access funding (regardless of whether the corresponding author was involved in the project). There is a dedicated Open Access agreement between Wiley and the FWF, so there is no need to apply for reimbursement. Please note that the FWF funding requirements have to be met.
