DFG Office North America: New York City, Washington DC and San Francisco
The USA and Canada play a leading role within the context of increasing globalization in science and research. North America – and especially the USA – continues to be the most competitive research region in the world. More than a quarter of the global funds spent on research and development are invested here, and more than half of all DFG-funded research fellows travel to North America after completing their doctorate for their important first career step.
The DFG maintains regional expertise at its headquarters in Bonn as well as running its own North American office in three locations, Washington D.C., New York City and San Francisco.
Under the banner "Chemistry in Germany: From Discovery to Application," the DFG's North American Office, together with the Fraunhofer Chemistry Alliance and the DWIH San Francisco, presented research and development in Germany at this year's fall annual meeting of the ACS. Interner Linkmore
