Researchers working together in the laboratory.

The Science and Technology Development Fund (STDF) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) announce the call for application for the German Egyptian Mobility Programme for Scientific Exchange and Excellence Development (GE-SEED 2018/19). GE-SEED aims at supporting bilateral mobility between Egyptian and German scientific teams up to five members with special emphasis on young scientists (Master and PhD students), and within the framework of a jointly submitted research project for a period of up to two years. The main goal of this programme is to encourage partnerships between both sides and enhance collaboration and technology transfer. Grants will be offered only towards travel and living costs within the framework of a well-defined and approved research project.

Proposals in a prescribed format are to be submitted by the German PI to the DAAD, Bonn Portal ( https://portal.daad.de/irj/portal ), and by the Egyptian PI to STDF, Egypt (www.stdf.org.eg) until 10 January 2019. Only applications submitted by the two PIs with all necessary documents will be considered. Proposals will be evaluated by DAAD and STDF on the basis of scientific merit, need for co-operation and the composition of project teams. For detailed information of the programme kindly download the General Information and Guidelines for Proposals.
