ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE GERMAN FEDERAL MINISTERY OF EDUCATION AND RESEARCH FOR FUNDING RESEARCH PROJECTS FOR FOSTERING INNOVATION ECOSYSTEMS IN MENA COUNTRIES

PARTNER COUNTRIES: Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan and the Palestinian areas

OBJECTIVES: The overall objective of this funding announcement is to support research projects in the BMBF's partner countries in the region which focus on practice-based solutions for research and innovation challenges and closely involve experts from the region. The funded projects are expected to propose practical concepts for improving the governance of research and innovation as well as the interface between science and industry. The projects will therefore involve intermediaries in particular such as associations, chambers, transfer networks and technology and start-up centres. The funded projects must address the following two tasks: 1) Drafting practical recommendations for action to improve the conditions and governance structures relevant to research and innovation 2) Identifying and implementing measures to strengthen the application and market orientation of research institutions

Eligible for application are universities, non-university research institutions and other institutions, which provide research contributions, as well as commercial companies, which have, at the time of the payment of the allowance, a permanent establishment in Germany. Especially small and medium-sized enterprises are encouraged to apply.


Deadline: 18th of September 2017

ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius:  “Trajectories of Change”, Ph.D. Scholarships in Humanities and Social Sciences

Focus 2017: Reshaping the Public Sphere

The scholarship programme “Trajectories of Change” addresses historical and current transformation processes in the European neighbourhood. It offers stipends and fieldwork grants for Ph.D. students in the humanities and social sciences. For 2017, research applications dealing with the changing public spheres and their impact on transformation are especially welcome.

Programme

Both democratization attempts and authoritarian developments in the European neighbourhood demonstrate the critical role of the public sphere for political and social change. Expanding communication technologies help to mobilize the public and enable new forms of exchange. These additional capacities to articulate interests and concerns can be harnessed to increase political pressure. Many regimes react with repression and censorship in order to regain power over the newly forged public spaces. How does the public sphere change in times of transformation and conflict? Which divisions and relationships of force are constitutive for this social field? How do public spheres vary cross-nationally?

Scholarships

The programme offers flexible funding schemes for Ph.D. students at various stages of their dissertation research as well as for graduate students in the phase of Ph.D. project development:

-          Ph.D. Scholarships

-          Dissertation Completion Scholarships

-          Pre-Doctoral Research Grants

-          Fieldwork Grants

 
 Requirements

-          Applicants must be Ph.D. students of social sciences or humanities. Prospective Ph.D. students can apply for Pre-Doctoral Research Grants.

-          Deadline 27 July 2017 for a stipend or grant starting in November/December 2017

-          Please apply online at www.trajectories-of-change.de with Ph.D. proposal and two references.

For young climate experts from developing countries interested in conducting a project in Germany and developing long-term collaborations

The fellowship allows future leaders to spend a year in Germany working on a research-based project of their own choice in the field of climate protection and climate-related resource conservation. Fellows are free to choose their own hosts. Submit an application if you come from a non-European transition or developing country (see list of countries) and are active in any of the following areas: scientific, engineering-based, legal, economic, health-related or social aspects of climate change.

During a three-week introductory phase, you will have the opportunity to make contact with other climate protection fellows and visit companies, research institutions and cultural events in Germany. An intensive German-language course before you begin the fellowship will smooth your way into everyday life in Germany whilst a continuing education event lasting several days in the course of the fellowship will enable you to acquire not only practical knowledge of climate protection but also expertise in management.

20 fellowships can be granted annually.
