Call open: 29 July 2021
Deadline: 30 September 2021
The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation), the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) and the Program Management Unit for Human Resources & Institutional Development, Research, and Innovation (PMU-B) are pleased to announce a call for proposals for German-Thai joint research projects. This initiative aims to bring together relevant and competitive researchers from Germany and Thailand to design and carry out jointly organised research projects of outstanding scientific quality. Funding within this initiative will be available for collaborative research projects consisting of researchers from both partner countries. Within these research teams, each national funding organisation will only fund those project components that are carried out within its own country. The collaborative research projects must involve active communication and cooperation between the participating researchers.
German-Thai joint research projects in the field of “Arboviruses” can be funded. Arboviruses include, but are not limited to, Dengue, Zika, Chikungunya, and Emerging Arboviruses. It is important to note that 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 collaborative projects selected to take part in the initiative will receive research funding for a period of up to three years.
