Possibility for German-American Collaboration within SSRC’s Media & Democracy Program - DFG programme “Initiation of International Cooperation” for cooperation with the Social Science Research Council (SSRC)
The Social Science Research Council (SSRC) is an independent, international, non-profit organisation devoted to the advancement of interdisciplinary research in the social sciences through a wide variety of workshops and conferences, fellowships and grants, summer training institutes, scholarly exchanges, research, and publications.
The Media & Democracy program at the SSRC encourages academic research, practitioner reflection, and public debate on all aspects of the close relationship between media and democracy.
Researchers eligible for DFG funding have the opportunity to liaise with the SSRC’s Media & Democracy program to organise joint conferences, make connections with North American scholars with similar interests, and build international scholarly networks.
In order to establish a basis for a joint research initiative between German researchers and their North American colleagues, researchers being eligible at DFG can submit joint international proposals within the regular funding instrument “Initiation of International Cooperation”, which could for example be used to apply for exploratory workshops (alone or in combination with guest visits in either direction).
The submission of proposals for the initiation of an international collaboration is possible at any time.
