Joint Polish-German research projects to receive € 6,6 M under the BEETHOVEN 2 call for proposals
The second bilateral call of the National Science Centre (NCN), organised jointly with the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft; DFG) has reached its conclusion. From among 155 research proposals submitted (72 in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and 83 in selected disciplines of Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics), the Polish-German panels of experts selected the top 38 projects (15 in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and 23 in selected disciplines of Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics). The funding awarded under BEETHOVEN 2 equalled € 6,6 M.
The call was open to research projects in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and in selected disciplines of Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics, carried out jointly by Polish-German research teams. Each of the awarded projects will have two Principal Investigators, for the Polish and German part of the project, respectively.
The projects were subject to a two-stage peer review, held jointly by the NCN and DFG: in its initial stage, the proposals were assessed by external Expert Reviewers recommended by the NCN and DFG; in the second stage, the panels of experts selected by the NCN and DFG convened to pass the final judgment.
Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft is a research grant organisation, financing basic research in all disciplines. It is an association, under private law, of German research universities, non-university research institutions, and scientific associations. It is financed chiefly from the funding supplied by German federal states and the Federal Government.
All Polish applicants will receive evaluation reports provided by Expert Panel Members as attachments to NCN Director’s decisions.
