The initiative's aims are to provide funding for integrated Polish-German research projects of outstanding scientific quality. It was launched in 2014 and expanded to include additional disciplines in 2016.
The "Beethoven CLASSIC 3" call, as a continuation of "Beethoven 2", is open to research projects in the humanities, social sciences, chemistry, mathematics, physics (including astronomy) and materials sciences.
With "Beethoven LIFE 1" joint Polish-German research projects in the life sciences will be accepted for the first time.
