BEETHOVEN 2 – Polish-German Call for Proposals coming up in September

Monday, 6 June 2016

The National Science Center (NCN) and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) will launch their second joint call for proposals within the funding initiative “Beethoven” on 15 September 2016. The submission deadline will be 15 December 2016.

Following up on its successful first round, NCN and DFG are extending the funding initiative “Beethoven” to cover new disciplines, now inviting proposals in the Humanities, Social Sciences and selected disciplines of Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics.

The aims of the call are:

  • to support research in the above-named disciplines carried out by Polish-German teams;
  • to strengthen cooperation between Polish and German researchers in basic (knowledge-oriented) research.

Proposals for research projects in the above-named disciplines must be written in English and submitted by a joint Polish-German research team. The duration of the projects must be either 24 or 36 months. The proposals will undergo a joint evaluation by both external reviewers and members of an expert panel selected by NCN and DFG.

Further information will be made available on 15 September 2016.
