The AEI and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) signed on 15 September 2021 a Memorandum of Understanding in which they expressed their desire to foster German-Spanish cooperation in all areas of scientific and technological research. Based on this desire and inspired by the WEAVE, collaboration model, both agencies are launching this first call for collaboration in which the DFG will act as “lead agency”.
This call aims to select research projects involving Spanish and German groups. The DFG will fund the German groups and the AEI will fund the Spanish beneficiary entities through the direct grant procedure for “International Collaboration Projects” (ICP) scheduled for the second half of 2024.
