Working Together with Asia and Oceania

The Asia-Pacific region has steadily gained in importance for researchers from Germany due to very dynamic developments in recent years. The DFG maintains trusting relationships with a large number of partner organisations in the region, some of which go back more than 40 years. The DFG’s priority fields of action in the Asia-Pacific region are the further intensification of international cooperation opportunities between researchers, scientific institutions and funding organisations and also the identification and development of new cooperation potential. With the Sino-German Center for Science Promotion (CDZ) in Beijing and the DFG Offices in New Delhi and Tokyo, the DFG is also locally represented in selected priority countries.
