Cologne International Forum Grants:
Two Funding Lines

The next application period for the Cologne International Forum Grants has started. See below for further information.

The intention of the Cologne International Forum’s two funding lines is to support international networking and the consolidation of outstanding research projects at the University of Cologne, as well as to stimulate innovative new international cooperation projects with international junior academics.

In accordance with these two core objectives, the Cologne International Forum makes annual calls for proposals along the following two funding lines:

1. One-year directorship of the International Research Cluster (one-year programme) for researchers at the University of Cologne, enabling the realization of up to 5 internationalization projects for comprehensive international, possibly also interdisciplinary, networking within the framework of a central research focus.


2. Five Innovative Tandem Collaborations a year to enable international junior researchers to realize a pioneering project, planned in collaboration with a partner based at the University of Cologne, preferably aimed at initiating longer-term collaboration.
