The call will be open to applications addressing any research topic where there is significant potential to advance knowledge through collaborative research bringing together arts and humanities researchers in the UK, whose research falls within the remit of the AHRC, and humanities (including law and linguistics) researchers in Germany.
Applicants in Germany must meet the DFG’s eligibility requirements and applicants in the UK must meet AHRC eligibility requirements.
Funding will be distributed among the research partners according to the researchers’ place of work and, in general, according to the funding rules of each individual agency.
The immediate resubmission of unsuccessful proposals from the second call (2019 to 2020), under the AHRC-DFG memorandum of understanding, to the third call (2020 to 2021) is not permitted, even if the proposal is revised. Any application judged to be a resubmission of an application under the second call will be rejected.
