Selected – 2016

Franco-German call for proposals in Social Sciences and Humanities

The ANR is launching its 10th Franco-German call for proposals in Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) in collaboration with the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).

This call aims to fund research projects involving at least one French and one German team. It is open to all research areas within the SSH. Thematically, the research projects don’t necessarily have to relate to Franco-German objects and/or field researches.

A report on past editions with advice for applicants is available above.

Funding requests are subject to each agency’s requirements, rules and procedures, as stated in the call for proposals. DFG and ANR will be respectively responsible for funding their national research teams: DFG will fund German research organizations and ANR will fund French ones.

Opening : 2015-12-15 at 14:40 CET
Application Deadline : 2016-03-15 at 13:00 CET

Project submission

Projects must be submitted to both agencies and follow their respective procedures (for more details on applications to ANR, please see the guidance in the call text, in particular in the appendix for French participants)

Each French partner will have to sign his application form and then scan it and put it online on ANR’s website before 31/03/2016 at 13:00 (CET).
