In an age of globalisation, research and education are only possible through international cooperation and worldwide partner networks. Here at the DLR Project Management Agency, we are tasked with supporting the establishment of international contacts and networks among German universities, research facilities and companies.
We provide grants for exploratory measures and project preparation, including feasibility and pilot studies. This programme is open to German universities and non-university institutions, as well as small to medium-sized enterprises operating in selected partner countries and focusing on scientific and research topics earmarked as priorities in relevant policies. There are measures in place to support scientist exchange programs between German and foreign partner institutions.
In most cases, we – the DLR Project Management Agency, International Office – will provide support in the form of exploratory analyses of collaboration possibilities, the establishment and strengthening of contacts with foreign institutions, and the preparation of cooperative projects, including feasibility and pilot studies. In this respect, geographical priorities and specific support programmes must be taken into consideration.
