DFG to Facilitate Participation by Refugee Scientists and Academics
News from Dec 14, 2015
The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) plans to support scientists and academics who have fled their home countries to participate in DFG-funded research projects.
DFG President Professor Dr. Peter Strohschneider announced a number of measures including participation in Research Training Groups, Collaborative Research Centres, and other DFG-funded coordinated projects.
The new measures will make it possible to submit supplemental proposals to existing funding projects and therefore enable participation by qualified reasearchers or those in training.
