Current information for researchers
With regard to the spread of the corona virus SARS-CoV-2, please note the adapted specifications of the various funding agencies, especially with regard to cost-neutral extensions of funded projects or the provision of additional resources. Further information can be found on the websites of the respective supporting institutions.
A description of the subject-specific adequate handling of research data as well as dealing with gender and diversity dimensions in the research context has been an integral part of proposals to the DFG for some time. Now, the DFG has updated its proposal guidelines for the programmes "Sachbeihilfe", "Teilprojekte in FOR" and "SPP", as well as for the Emmy Noether Programme, and asks applicants to address these topics in more detail. Accordingly, the new application guidelines feature adapted outlines and notes.
- In particular, the increased relevance of the topic "Handling Research Data" (Chapter 2.4) should be taken into account. Applicants are now asked to address this topic within the project description and in more detail than before. A checklist is available as a guide to the required information. In addition, further information on the handling of research data and the DFG's measures to promote adequate handling of research data can be accessed (see link below).
- By locating the chapter "Handling Research Data" as well as the chapter "Relevance of Gender and/or Diversity" in the first, scientific part of the description of the project, the page separation has now been adjusted from the previous 15 + 10 pages to 17 + 8 pages in the programme material grant. This means that 17 pages are now available for the scientific part. For the second part, which consists of the chapters "Accompanying information" and "Applied modules/funds", an additional eight pages are available.
- In Chapter 2.3 "Work Programme", a note has been added to the effect that quality assurance measures for the project can be explained in the work programme if necessary.
- Chapter 4.1.2 "Explanation of the planned investigations in experiments on humans or on material taken from humans" was expanded to include the area of experiments with "identifiable data" in the title and was supplemented with notes regarding the presentation of the experimental plan.
- The information on "Dual Use Research of Concern" (Chapter 4.1.5) was updated due to changes in legal standards.
Transitionally, applications will be accepted according to the previous versioning until 31 May 2022.
