Pre-announcement call for European-Chinese joint research projects
The research funding organisations of China (NSFC), France (ANR), Germany (DFG), The Netherlands (NWO) and the United Kingdom (ESRC) announce a new multi-lateral collaboration consisting of a joint research programme on two basic societal challenges:
• The challenges of the Green Economy;
• The challenges of Population Change.
Researchers may have any disciplinary background within the social sciences and beyond, however, the proposal should be predominantly within the social sciences. Projects will also need to involve a number of Chinese and European partners. Further information will probably be available by the end of June 2013 with the full call launched in September. The closing date will be early December this year.
