DFG-RSF Cooperation: Possibility for Joint German-Russian Project Proposals in all Fields of Science
To facilitate the support of collaborative work between German and Russian research groups, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and the Russian Science Foundation (RSF) have opened the possibility for joint German-Russian project proposals for a funding period of three years in all fields of science. Collaborations of research teams from both countries are invited to submit joint proposals.
All proposals will be reviewed by both organisations separately. Support will be granted for those proposals where both DFG and RSF recommend funding.
Proposal preparation and submission
Proposals must be submitted to both organisations in parallel in accordance with the proposal preparation requirements of each side, respectively. For German groups this means submission via DFG’s elan system.
The proposal must include a description of the full proposed research programme and research team and describe the total resources for the joint project (that is, the funds requested for both the Russian and German groups). However, in the elan-budget forms submitted to the DFG, only the amount requested from the DFG should by entered.
Please note that the reviewers on both sides will need the full information on the PI from Germany as well as from Russia.
For German partners – please note that if you are using the elan system for the first time, you need to register by 6 December 2021.
In accordance with the full proposal target date of the RSF, proposals to the DFG should be submitted not later than 13 December 2021.
The results of the call are to be expected by the end of October 2022.
