NSFC-DFG collaboration in the fields of mathematics and physics, geosciences, engineering and material sciences, and information sciences.
The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) are continuing their long-standing collaboration in the field of joint Sino-German research projects.
This initiative aims to bring together relevant and competitive researchers from Germany and China to design and carry out jointly organised research projects of outstanding scientific quality. Funding within this initiative will be available for collaborative research projects consisting of researchers from both partner countries. Within these research teams, each national funding organisation will generally only fund those project components that are carried out within its own country. The collaborative research projects must involve active communication and cooperation between the participating researchers.
Deadline for proposals
3 March 2021
The present initiative is open to joint research projects in the fields of chemistry, life sciences, medical sciences and management sciences.
The collaborative projects selected to take part in the initiative will receive research funding for a period of up to three years.
