Polish-German Foundation for Science (PNFN)
Purpose of the call:
Four thematic priorities continue to apply for research proposals in the humanities and social sciences:
- Culture and Knowledge Transfer,
- Europeanization Processes,
- Changing norms and values,
Each project should be allocated to one (or more) thematic priority. Further information is available in the text "description of thematic priorities". Funding of a project outside the assigned priorities is only possible in special, justified cases. If in doubt, applicants should contact the Foundation Office early enough with a brief project description to check whether the project fits into the area of support.
The maximum grant amount in this competition is €80,000. The average grant amount is between €50,000 and €70,000. The percentage of positive decisions is 20-30%.
The amount of the grant should be divided as equally as possible between the Polish and German project partners, with one party receiving a maximum of 70% of the funds. However, the awarded funds are always paid to one institution - either in Poland or in Germany - which will be responsible for transferring the funds to the other partner.
Scholarships are preferred. The rate for doctoral students is 1,500 euros in Germany/1,000 euros in Poland and for post-doctoral students 1,700 euros in Germany/1,200 euros in Poland; child/family allowance is already included.
