Funding Organisations

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation - DFG) is the central, self-governing research funding organisation that promotes research at universities and other publicly financed research institutions in Germany. The DFG serves all branches of science and the humanities by funding research projects proposed by individuals as well as by several institutions (collaborative institutional proposals). It proposes a wide range of funding opportunities, all of them open to international project collaboration. Proposals for funding of international project collaborations compete with all other proposals under the respective DFG procedure.
In cooperation with China, there are additionally joint calls for Sino-German Research projects for which the assessment of the proposals is based on a peer review process at both the DFG and the NSFC.
