2nd call for proposals
An agreement between the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR France), Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG Germany), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC UK) and the Nederlands Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (NWO Netherlands).
In order to strengthen European co-operation in the field of social sciences, wishing to fund high quality scientific research within their own countries, and conscious that some of the best research can be delivered by working with the best researchers internationally, ANR, DFG, ESRC and NWO are launching a second common call for proposals in order to fund the best joint research projects in social sciences. The scheme will provide for the funding of integrated projects by researchers coming from more than one of the four participating countries – in any combination of two or more countries. The partner organisations will conduct a co-ordinated peer review and a single common selection process. Funding will be distributed among the partners according to the place of work of the researchers, and generally according to the funding rules of each individual agency (with some exceptions detailed below).
Franco-German bilateral projects will continue to be funded under the ANR-DFG scheme for Social Sciences and Humanities and are therefore excluded from this call.
Within the framework of this call, the disciplinary coverage may vary according to the involvement of the national agencies. Proposals may be submitted in any area of the social sciences. Applicants who are uncertain of whether their proposal would be eligible should contact the relevant national agencies for clarification.
Deadline for the submission of proposals: 30 September 2011, until 12 p.m. (midday) C.E.T
Only completed and timely uploaded applications will be considered.
