Within the scope of the Memorandum of Understanding between the German Research Foundation and the Chilean Agencia Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo, a joint call for German-Chilean research projects is launched. The present initiative is open to joint research projects in the following fields:
- Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
- Astronomy and Astrophysics
Funding is available for a period of up to three years for bilateral collaborative research projects comprising researchers from Germany and Chile. Within a research project, contributions from Germany and Chile should be balanced with regard to the scientific contents.
There are no separate funds available for these efforts; proposals must succeed on the strengths of their intellectual merit and teams in competition with all other proposals in the funding programme “Sachbeihilfe/Research Grants”.
The assessment of all proposals will be based on a peer review process at both the DFG and ANID. The results of these review processes will be shared between the DFG and ANID. Support will be granted for those proposals where both DFG and ANID recommend funding.
Applicants for a bilateral collaborative project within this call must submit their joint proposal to their national funding organisation. German principal investigators (PI) submit their documents to DFG, Chilean PIs to ANID. All proposals must be submitted by 31 January 2023.
