Call for joint project proposals 2020/2021


FCT and the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) hereby launch a call for joint project proposals from Portuguese and German research teams, for the 2020-2021 period. This call falls within the framework of the Agreement for Cooperation in Science between Portugal and Germany (established in 1990).


Funding will be made exclusively for mobility of researchers participating in the projects: travel costs and stay of Portuguese researchers in Germany (project budget: 2000€/year).

Funding for the second year is dependent on submission and approval of the technical/financial report (available form on the FCT website). This report should be sent to the Department for International Relations, by the end of December, 2020.


The inclusion of young researchers in the teams is mandatory. Non-compliance leads to exclusion of the application. Priority is given to new projects and/or new teams and teams which haven’t been financed in the previous calls..


Joint project proposals must be submitted simultaneously by the Portuguese partners to FCT and by German researchers to DAAD in the set format. Unilaterally submitted projects shall not be considered.

The completed project proposals must reach both sides by 5 pm (Lisbon time) , on 26 July 2019. These should include:


Proposals shall be evaluated according to the following criteria: scientific merit of the proposal; quality of the research teams involved in the proposal; degree of participation of young Portuguese researchers; suitability of the exchange of researchers to the proposed work plan.

All eligible proposals will be evaluated by both sides, and then jointly by the Joint Selection Committee, made up of members of FCT and of the DAAD. Selected proposals will meet the joint interested of both institutions.

Besides scientific evaluation, other criteria shall be taken into consideration, such as scientific areas or geographical distribution.
