DFG regular funding programmes for cooperation with Brazilian National Institutes of Science and Technology (INCTs)
In order to enhance the with Brazilian National Institutes of Science and Technology (INCTs) collaborations and to foster the establishment of new ones, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) would like to call attention to the various funding programmes available to scientists working in Germany that provide opportunities for joint research activities. For existing collaborations, the research grants programme as well as the coordinated programmes of the DFG can be used to unilaterally finance joint activities with INCTs. German researchers who are looking for new interactions with individuals or groups inside an INCT may apply within the programme “Initiation of International Collaboration” for funding of trips abroad, guest visits or workshops. These opportunities follow the general DFG funding lines and budgets. There are no additional funds available, and proposals must succeed on the strengths of their intellectual merit in comparison with other proposals.
