Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)

The German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) 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 predominantly from funding supplied by German federal states and the Federal Government.

In 2013, the National Science Centre initiated contacts with the German Research Foundation. Due to the ever-increasing percentage of Polish-German proposals submitted under the NCN’s HARMONIA funding scheme, on the 12th of September 2014 the NCN and DFG launched a first joint call for proposals in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
