Korean-German Funding Programme for Joint Workshops and Research Visits
Deadline: 5. April 2023
The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF) are pleased to announce a call for proposals for Korean-German joint workshops and research visits. Proposals must be submitted not later than 5 April 2023. This initiative aims to bring together relevant and competitive researchers from Germany and South Korea to establish collaborative scientific relationships and prepare joint projects. Funding is available for the following collaborative measures:
• exploratory workshops;
• research visits (max. three months).
Both components can be combined if they are in close temporal relationship and if this facilitates especially effective preparation of a joint project. All individual collaborative measures must be carried out within a maximum period of twelve months. Early career scientists holding a doctoral degree are strongly encouraged to participate in the above-mentioned activities.
Each national funding organisation will fund the costs for travel and accommodation of the researchers based in its own country. Organisational costs for workshops and for participants in workshops from third countries are funded by the funding organisation of the host country. Funding is only available for projects which involve a convincing collaboration between the German and Korean partners and for which the anticipated research benefit is clearly outlined.
Proposals must be submitted to both organisations in accordance with the proposal preparation requirements of both sides, respectively. Applicants from Korea submit their documents to the NRF, applicants from Germany to the DFG. Applicants to be funded by the DFG are requested to fulfil the eligibility requirements of DFG Initiation of International Collaboration and use the corresponding application form, see the corresponding guidelines of the Initiation of International Collaboration Programme (DFG form 1.813; see link below). The components “exploratory workshops” and “project-related trips abroad” can be funded. Please note that the component “project-related guest visits“ cannot be funded since costs for travel and accommodation of researchers based in Korea who are visiting partners in Germany are funded by NRF.
For applicants to be funded by the DFG the “Duty to Cooperate” within Germany for members of non-university institutions with permanent positions applies. All documents must be written in English and must be submitted by
5 April 2023. Proposals arriving late and/or those not fulfilling the national requirements will not be considered. For first-time users of the DFG’s online submission system “elan” pre-registration is necessary by 22 March 2023.
