Research takes place in an international context. To globally network and promote excellent research in Germany, the DFG is active at various international levels.
All DFG funding programmes are open to international project collaboration. The DFG maintains relationships with a wide range of partner organisations in other countries. Joint funding programmes and agreements with foreign partner organisations enable German research to be funded in global collaborations throughout the complete DFG funding portfolio.
In terms of international strategy, the DFG actively participates in international research policy as a politically independent funding organisation. To optimally support German research, it is represented on various scientific and science policy organisations and bodies at European and international level.
