Pre-announcement of the NCN-DFG Calls for Joint Polish-German Proposals

4th Polish-German calls coming up in September 2020

Following up on their previous three successful rounds, the National Science Centre (NCN) and Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) continue their cooperation by launching joint funding initiatives for Polish-German research projects, now covering all fields of science and the humanities.

For joint projects in the humanities and social sciences:
The “Beethoven CLASSIC 4” call will be a continuation of the “Beethoven CLASSIC 3” call with a joint peer review and selection process. It is open to research in the Humanities and Social sciences. This corresponds to the subject areas covered by

  • DFG review boards/Fachkollegien
    • 101–113. Proposals in subject 317-02 are accepted if they have a clear humanities and social sciences focus.
  • and NCN panels
    • HS1–HS6.

For joint projects in life sciences, physical sciences and engineering:
Polish-German joint proposals in life sciences, physical sciences and engineering should be submitted to the NCN OPUS scheme and will be administered in accordance with the principles of the Lead Agency Procedure (NCN OPUS LAP). The NCN will act as the lead agency, i.e. assessment of all applications will be made by the NCN according to its rules for the OPUS scheme. The coverage of this initiative corresponds to the subject areas covered by

  • DFG review boards/Fachkollegien
    • 201–207, 307–318, 321–327, 401–410
      (Proposals in subject 317-02 with a clear humanities and social sciences focus must be submitted to Beethoven Classic 4.)
  • and NCN panels
    • ST1–ST10 and NZ1–NZ9.

The aims of the joint funding initiative calls are:

  • to support research in the above-named disciplines carried out by Polish-German teams;
  • to strengthen cooperation between Polish and German researchers in basic (knowledge-oriented) research.

Proposals for research projects in the above-listed disciplines must be written in English and submitted by joint Polish-German research teams. The duration of the projects must be either 24 or 36 months.

The National Science Centre (NCN) and Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) will launch “Beethoven CLASSIC 4” on 15 September 2020.
The NCN OPUS LAP scheme open to Polish-German joint proposals in life sciences, physical sciences and engineering will be launched on 15 September 2020.

Information for German applicants in NCN OPUS LAP: On the German side of the proposal only one applicant/principal investigator (PI) is eligible per proposal. Other German researchers can collaborate with the PI but will not receive funding from DFG. Please note that a duty to cooperate applies to this call, therefore, researchers that must comply with these regulations are not eligible as PI in the present call.

The submission deadline for proposals under “Beethoven CLASSIC 4” and the NCN OPUS LAP scheme will be on 15 December 2020. Further information will be made available on 15 September 2020 on the websites of both agencies.
