Information for Researchers No. 54 | 2 October 2013
ANR-DFG Cooperation 2014
The Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) advanced a joint funding initiative open to all fields of the Natural, Life and Engineering Sciences including interdisciplinary research for 2013. Following up on this successful collaboration, ANR and DFG recently arranged a continuation. The ANR-DFG Cooperation 2014 will be managed as a unilateral lead agency procedure with DFG serving as the lead agency.
The Humanities and Social Sciences have not been included because of their separately implemented bilateral programme. The proposals in social science and humanities continue to be submitted in the dedicated ANR-DFG call in Social Sciences and Humanities, including transdisciplinary projects when they propose an approach mainly centered on social science and humanities, and/or when the Principal Investigator is one from the Social Sciences/Humanities.
Full proposals for joint bilateral research projects in Natural Sciences, Life sciences, and Engineering Sciences can be submitted electronically to the DFG by 9 December 2013.
Pre-proposals are not required.
For further information please refer to “ANR-DFG 2014 – General information for applicants” below.
Assessment of all applications will be made by the DFG according to its rules for the individual grants programme within the regular competition. The duration of the projects can be up to three years.
Decisions can be expected in October 2014.
In case of approval, the research projects will be funded by each partner institution. Funding will be granted from the regular budgets of ANR and DFG.
