Programme Goal

The co-financed German Egyptian Research Fund (GERF) provides support for German-Egyptian research cooperation in areas of mutual interest. The grants are intended to give researchers – including young scientists – an opportunity to address new areas of scientific research. Research results generated in these projects are to be developed into concrete applications. In addition, a further aim of the joint research fund is to help scientific networks apply for funding under EU or national funding schemes.

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MoHESR) have commissioned two agencies: the Science and Technology Development Fund (STDF) for Egyptian applicants and the Project Management Agency (PT) DLR for German applicants.
