On 30 October, two days before the deadline, we submitted the second and revised application for the third funding period for participation in the NFDI consortia and we are looking forward to the evaluation process that will now follow. A total of one main applicant, ten co-applicants and 56 participating institutions as well as three individual researchers submitted the application.
Even though, the first proposal was already positively evaluated by the DFG, the consortium initiative and the proposal jointly formulated by the co-applicant institutions (DAI, Landesdenkmalamt BaWü, Uni Bonn, CAU Kiel, DBM Bochum, RGZM, SPK, GDKE and VZG) have benefited greatly from the revision. Through the further formulation, the cooperation between the applying institutions has deepened and the already good cooperation has developed into an extremely trusting and productive collaboration – this has benefited the application greatly.
At the beginning of February, we were allowed to present our proposal at the DFG’s NFDI review meeting.
