German-American collaborations are invited to submit proposals in the areas described in the Gravitational Physics programmes (contact the programme officers for information on related areas of research). These proposals will be reviewed in competition with other proposals received in the same submission window by one of the agencies, which for the review process will serve as the lead agency.
It is important to note that there are no separate funds available for these efforts; proposals must compete with all other proposals within the programme and must succeed on the strengths of their intellectual merit and broader impact. The results of the review process will be shared between the agencies to make final decisions on this basis. Support will be granted for those proposals were both DFG and NSF recommend funding.
In accordance with the proposal target date of the NSF proposals should be submitted not later than 25 October 2017.
