Educational Institutions

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) - German Research Foundation is the central self-governing research funding organisation in Germany. It serves all branches of science and the humanities by funding research projects at universities and research institutions. The DFG promotes excellence by selecting the best research projects on a competitive basis and actively encourages international research cooperation. It is particularly dedicated to the promotion of young researchers and to gender equality in science and academia. It also advises legislatures and government agencies on scientific matters.

The Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the German Research Foundation (DFG) are opening the possibility for joint Indo-German research project funding in the field of Materials Science and Engineering (DFG review boards 405 and 406). Effective immediately, Indo-German teams of researchers in this field are invited to submit joint proposals describing integrated research projects with a duration of up to three years. As is common in funding activities of this sort, DST are looking to fund the Indian side of Indo-German projects, while DFG would fund the German side.

Researchers interested in synchronized Indian-German funding in Materials Science and Engineering have until 21 November 2018 to submit their proposals. The proposals will be evaluated separately by DST and DFG. Support will then be granted for those proposals where both DFG’s and DST’s decision-making bodies recommend funding.
