CONICET 2016: Second call for proposals
Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)
The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation), the Argentinean Ministry for Science, Technology and Productive Innovation (MINCYT) and the National Council for Scientific and Technological Research (CONICET) are pleased to announce the second call for proposals to fund joint German-Argentinean research projects in the following areas:

· Physical Chemistry
· Materials Sciences
· Geosciences
· Oceanography
· Immunology
· Neurosciences
· Social Sciences and Humanities

Proposals will be accepted for joint collaborative research projects of up to three years. Researchers must comply with the funding and eligibility requirements as stipulated by their respective funding organisation, (please follow the links below). Argentinean and German researchers must submit their proposals to MINCYT/CONICET and DFG, respectively, by 5 October 2016. German partners must submit their proposals within the DFG's Research Grants Programme in compliance with the guidelines outlined in DFG form 50.01. This includes the eligibility criteria for applicants to be funded by DFG. Eligibility will be checked by both DFG and MINCYT/CONICET for the German and Argentinean sides.

The scientific level of the projects should be high in international comparison. Although the scientific quality of the proposals is the decisive criterion, joint projects must also demonstrate a clear added value to the applicants' cooperation beyond what could be achieved individually. Please note that the scientific content of the proposal submitted at DFG and MINCYT/CONICET must be identical! The joint proposal shall be written in English and shall contain an abstract, the scientific description, the goals and tasks as well as the justification of the requested cost items according to DFG form 50.01. Funding of the joint research projects is contingent upon positive assessment by all funding organisations. Joint German-Argentinean projects will be co-funded by the Argentinean funding organisations; unilateral funding of only one part of the project is not possible. The DFG does not provide special funds for this initiative. Assessment of all applications will be made by the DFG according to its rules for the individual grants programme within the regular competition.

German researchers from non-university research institutions who have to fulfill the duty to cooperate may only submit proposals together with a partner from a German university. Your duty to cooperate is not considered as fulfilled if you only cooperate with an Argentinean university partner.

Allowable costs
For German applicants, funds may be used to cover salaries of postdoctoral fellows and doctoral students, for consumables and instrumentation as well as travel expenses for internal consortia and scientific conferences. Within a collaborative project, researcher mobility between Argentina and Germany is strongly encouraged and can be supported by funding travel expenses and per diem expenses. All requested cost items must be in accordance with the national administrative regulations, respectively. The guidelines of the Research Grants Programme (DFG form 50.01) and the respective modules apply for applicants to be funded by DFG.
At DFG, only costs for the German share of projects are eligible. Costs of the Argentinean share of the projects have to be funded by MINCYT/CONICET.

Call closure: 5 October 2016
Approximate beginning of funding: July 2017
