On March 11, 2020, the coronavirus outbreak was declared a global pandemic by the WHO. The spread and potential lasting existence of the COVID-19 pose severe threats to the world. In face of the global challenge, joint efforts of international partners, are urgently needed to accelerate the R&D activities against the novel coronavirus.
The Sino-German Center for Research Promotion (SGC), as an international research funding organization jointly set up by NSFC and DFG to promote China-Germany scientific collaboration as its core mission, strives to play an important role at the forefront of this effort by facilitating cooperation and exchanges between scientists from both countries in fundamental research on the fight against the pandemic. SGC is therefore issuing a rapid response funding call for bilateral collaborative proposals jointly submitted by Chinese and German applicants in COVID-19 related research.
