New Edition of the French-German Call for Proposals in the Natural, Life and Engineering Sciences
For the 2021 edition of this call, Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) will act as the lead agency, i.e., joint proposals describing the bilateral projects as a whole have to be submitted firstly to ANR, which will be responsible for processing proposals and conducting the review process. The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) will require a copy of the proposal documents to be submitted on its web portal for proposal submissions.
ANR requests pre-registration by the French project coordinator. This only includes formal data (title, acronym, participating scientists, financial estimates, etc.) and is required before 1st December 2020 at 1 p.m. on ANR’s submission website. This pre-registration is a necessary condition for submitting a full proposal. ANR will notify the French coordinators when the submission site for full proposals opens. DFG will update its dedicated webpage when this information becomes available.
Please note that proposals in the social sciences and humanities must be submitted in the dedicated ANR-DFG call in social sciences and humanities (with separate deadlines). This also applies to transdisciplinary projects when the proposed approach mainly centres on these fields, and/or when the principal investigator is from the social sciences / humanities.
