German-Polish Call Announcement
Poland is a key partner for Germany, both as a neighbour and in the European Union. Alongside close political and economic relations, cooperation in science and research also plays an important role. This cooperation is based on the 1989 bilateral agreement on “Scientific and Technological Cooperation”.
The BMBF and the National Centre for Research and Development of the Republic of Poland (NCBIR) are again funding bilateral research projects in sustainability research under a call for proposals on 1 September 2015 . This time the call will focus on funding small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The aim is to strengthen the position of SMEs in the faster transfer of technology from the precompetitive phase to practical application.
The call for proposals is available at www.fona.de/de/20182 (in German)
