The French Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) are continuing their annual collaboration for French-German projects in the Natural, Life and Engineering Sciences.
This is based on an agreement signed by both agencies in 2018, establishing joint French-German projects as a standard offer within the DFG’s research grants programme.
For the 2020 edition of this call, DFG will act as the lead agency, i.e., joint (full) proposals describing the bilateral projects as a whole have to be submitted firstly to DFG, which will be responsible for processing them and conducting the review process. The ANR will require a copy of the documents to be submitted on its dedicated web portal. Please note that there is no pre-proposal stage.
Deadline for proposals
9. January 2020
Qualified researchers (as a rule, those holding a doctorate) from all disciplines working at German research institutions.
Natural, Life and Engineering Sciences
The maximum initial funding duration is three years. Subsequently, a renewal proposal may be submitted.
The Funding amount can be found in the Guidelines from the DFG or ANR.
