NSF and DFG Opportunity for Collaborations in Advanced Manufacturing

News vom 22.11.2021

The pursuit of scientific goals recognises no geographic boundaries and as such, international collaborations are today more the norm than the exception. To facilitate the support of collaborative work between US groups and their German counterparts, the Civil Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation Division of the US National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Division of Engineering of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) have agreed on a lead-agency activity in Advanced Manufacturing in 2020.

US-German collaborations are invited to submit joint proposals which fall into the scope NSF’s Advanced Manufacturing programme and DFG’s review boards 401 Production Technology or 405 Materials Engineering.

These proposals will be reviewed in a review panel according to the NSF review guidelines (including the NSF review criteria) in competition with other proposals received in the same NSF programme. A member of DFG’s review boards will be involved in the review process.

It is important to note that there are no separate funds available for these efforts on each side; proposals must compete with all other proposals in this area. The result of the review process will be shared between the agencies to make final decisions on this basis. Support will be granted for those proposals with both DFG and NSF recommendation for funding.
