The German Research Foundation - DFG

Clarisse Faria-Fortecoëf

The DFG is the central, public funding organisation that promotes research at universities as well as non-university research institutions or scientific associations in Germany.

The Deutsche Forschungsmeinschaft, DFG, serves all branches of Science including Humanities.

Its key goals are :

- Foster scientific excellence through competition,
- Advise parliaments and public authorities on questions relating to science and research,
- Encourage international collaboration between researchers.

A particular emphasis is placed on supporting the advancement and education of young researchers.
For this purpose, the section "Research Careers" on the DFG website, http://www.dfg.de/en/, is particularly relevant.
The information on “Career planning” will assist you in finding the right funding instruments/programmes at all stages of your scientific and academic career (doctoral students, post-doctoral candidates, university teaching…).

In the section “News”, announcements and calls for proposals with an international focus, are regularly published.
