In accordance with an agreement reached by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and endorsed by the Joint Committee of the Sino-German Center for Research Promotion (SGC) in 2018, the SGC intends to launch a call for proposals to support cooperation and exchanges between scientists in China and Germany. The call includes two funding measures: a Mobility Programme and Workshops. The proposed collaboration must be based on a joint proposal for a single project/workshop (or both), with one team based in China and one team based in Germany. 
The “Mobility Programme” serves to facilitate bilateral cooperation between a research team in China and a research team in Germany by funding multiple visits (up to 3 months per visit) and small-scale workshops over a period of 36 months.
