Since 2008, the NSFC and DFG have generally issued tenders once a year for joint research requests in the life, natural and engineering sciences. To date, DFG and NSFC have launched four bilateral tenders. Two trilateral tenders were also launched in 2010 and 2011, with the participation of the Academy of Finland. In 2013, a new framework agreement was signed between dfg and NRF. This agreement was then supplemented by two annexes to agreed cooperation programmes, such as the Joint Research Programme and the International Research Training Groups (IRTGs). The Annex “Joint Research Programme” defines cooperation in the award of individual grants. The NRF supports German-Korean projects through tenders published once a year in Korea. Applications can be submitted to the DFG at any time. The two organizations review the proposals according to their own criteria and then agree on the proposals to be jointly funded. If a proposal is positively considered, unilateral aid may also be proposed. The annex “International Postgraduate Colleges (IGK)” regulates the promotion of German-Korean postgraduate colleges.

The first DFG cooperation agreements in China were signed in 1981 with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) and the Ministry of Education (MoE). In 1988, DFG also entered into an agreement with the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). NSFC is the leading institution in China to promote basic research in the natural, life, engineering and management sciences. The first Memorandum of Understanding with Russia was concluded in 1970 with the Russian Academy of Sciences (SAR), followed by the Russian Foundation for Fundamental Research (RFBR) in 1995 and the Russian Scientific Foundation (RSF) in 2015. These two organisations are one of the main cooperation partners of the DFG and carry out open thematic tenders for German-Russian cooperation projects every year. In recent years, DFG has also developed institutional partnerships with Russia`s two leading universities, Moscow State University (MSU) and St.
Petersburg State University (SPbU). Please follow the instructions in the document “Factsheet on relations with institutions and residents of Crimea in the context of German-Russian measures supported by the German authorities”, published by the Federal Government following the extension of sanctions imposed by the European Union. In 2014, the two organisations signed the agreement on small and medium-scale cooperation networks, which allows the joint submission of several individual proposals on the same topic. . . .
