New German-Japanese funding initiative
Just added to the Funding section on our portal: a joint call from German and Japanese agencies JST, BMBF and DFG.
The Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) have announced the implementation of a new programme for joint funding of German-Japanese cooperative research in computational neuroscience.
Citing from the call text: "This initiative focuses on the funding of collaborative research projects that bring together scientists and engineers with complementary experience and training in the experimental and theoretical neurosciences. Proposals for research projects should describe collaborations that bring together the complementary expertise needed to achieve significant advances on challenging interdisciplinary problems. They should include collaborations among computational and/or modelling experts, theorists, and experimental neuroscientists or engineers. Computational research supported under this initiative must relate to biological processes and should lead to hypotheses that are testable in biological studies."
The application deadline is August 8, 2011.
