The bilaterally financed funding scheme GE-SEED enables Egyptian and German researchers to collaborate on joint projects for up to 2 years.
Call for GE-SEED 2016/17 from 9.10.2016 - 5.12.2016 is now closed!
GE-SEED aims at supporting bilateral mobility between Egyptian and German scientific teams 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 program is to encourage partnerships between both sides and enhance collaboration and technology transfer.
With a view to intensifying interaction and scientific cooperation between Egyptian and German Scientists / Institutions, the Science and Technology Development Fund (STDF) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) jointly extend support for exchange of scientific visits through the jointly funded German Egyptian Mobility Program for Scientific Exchange and Excellence Development (GE-SEED).
Thus, the program is quite literally to be considered as SEED money for further collaborative research.
