Other Funding Opportunities

General information pertaining to the German researchscape and support is provided on the web portal Kooperation international, which is commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

In addition to the BMBF, other German federal ministries with scientific research in their portfolio may support bilateral projects. The Federal Funding Advisory Service is available in English, and also offers a newsletter subscription. Information about international cooperation in industrial research can be found on the site of the German Federation of Industrial Research Associations Otto von Guericke.
