Here you will find current calls from other organizations.

Based on the agreement with The World Academy of Sciences for the Advancement of Science in Developing Countries (TWAS), the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) draws the attention of researchers at German research institutions to the possibility of inviting researchers in early career phases and of all disciplines from sub-Saharan African countries to spend three months at their institution in Germany for the purpose of research and cooperation.

The DFG pays the host institution a monthly sum of €2,350 to cover the visiting researcher’s accommodation and visa expenses. In addition, the visiting researcher’s flight and rail costs to and from the institution are reimbursed up to an amount of €1,350. In addition to this, the host institution can receive up to €700 per month in funding to cover direct project costs such as material and laboratory costs.

The requirements for proposal submission by the visiting researchers are as follows:
• They must be a citizen of a sub-Saharan African country.
• They must be engaged in research activity at a university or research institution in a sub-Saharan African country.
• They must not have obtained their doctorate before the year 2019. However, visiting female researchers with children can have obtained their doctorate earlier. An extension of two years per child (a maximum six years in total – 2013) is possible.
• They must not be currently engaged in any activity in Germany or ongoing research with the host institution.

Proposals must be submitted to TWAS by visiting researchers no later than 5 June 2024.
