In this section, you will find the guidelines for researchers who want to submit a proposal to the GIF. Should any questions remain open, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
All information on all pages in the Applicants' section is part of the GIF Guidelines, which are binding for all applicants and grantees.
For your convenience, you can download a full version of the GIF Guidelines in
PDF format here.
As a rule, each applicant can be a Principal Investigator (PI) in only one proposal at a time. Applicants to the GIF Regular Program, however, can apply as Cooperating Investigator (CI) in other proposals as well. For more information please see the guidelines for applicants in the GIF Regular Program.
GIF will not fund more than one Grant per PI simultaneously. You may, however, apply for a continuation Grant on the last year of an ongoing Grant. Before starting a new Grant (even if it is a continuation Grant) you must fulfill all your obligations in the current Grant. There are no exceptions to this rule.
One last remark: while our funding options are limited, we do hope that even applicants whose proposal was not granted will find a way to continue to collaborate with the scientists from the other country.
I wish you much success for your proposal to GIF.
