GACR-DFG Cooperation: Possibility for Joint German-Czech Research Projects
Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)
On the basis of their long standing cooperation and the respective Memorandum of Understanding the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and the Czech Science Foundation (GACR) have opened the possibility for funding of joint German-Czech projects in all areas of basic research for the period of 2021-2023. Collaborations of research teams from both countries are invited to submit joint proposals. These joint proposals have to be based on a close interaction between the German and Czech research teams and should present joint project goals and a joint work plan with balanced contributions from all project partners. It is important to note that there are no separate funds available for these efforts, proposals must succeed on the strengths of their intellectual merit in competition with all other proposals in the funding scheme "Sachbeihilfe/Research Grants". All proposals will be reviewed by both organisations separately. The results of the review process will be shared between the agencies. Support will be granted for those proposals where both DFG and GACR recommend funding.
