(GERF) 1. Funding purpose and legal basis 1.1 Funding purpose On the occasion of the closing event of the "German-Egyptian Year of Science and Technology 2007" in Berlin, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Egyptian Ministry of Scientific Research (MoSR) agreed to establish a German-Egyptian Research Fund (GERF) for the support of joint application-oriented research projects. With the aim of promoting bilateral research cooperation between the two countries in areas of mutual interest, grants are to be provided 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 to apply for funding under the EU's HORIZON2020 Research Programme or under national funding schemes. 1.2 Legal basis This announcement is based on the ?Declaration Concerning the Establishment of a Joint Fund in the Field of Applied Research' of 2007. Funding will be awarded in accordance with the respective national project funding regulations applicable in Egypt and Germany [cf. Section 6 of this announcement]. 2. Object of funding The aim of this fifth joint announcement is to fund and support joint innovative, applicationoriented research projects. Applicants are particularly encouraged to submit proposals in the following fields: - Agricultural Research and Natural Resource Management (including Water Resources, Food Production and Food Safety) - Renewable Energy - Material Sciences and Engineering - Health Sciences - Information and Communication Technology (ICT) - Urban Planning (including Transportation resp. Traffic Planning and Management) The announcement is open to researchers of all disciplines. Emphasis is given to joint projects including an interdisciplinary dimension and studying also the economic and social dimension of the aforementioned fields. Special emphasis is put on cooperation between different partners in the area of R&D, their scientific qualifications, and the participation of industry partners. For this reason, project consortia should, if possible, include universities, public authorities, R&D institutions and companies in charge of the commercial application of applied research results. An important additional asset for research proposals is the participation of young researchers. Measures for the promotion of export activities will not be funded under this call 3.
