Germany and France are jointly supporting the implementation of the 2015 Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Both countries are leading the way with their coordinated German-French Fellowship Programme to promote research in the areas of climate, energy and Earth system science. Under the French "Make our planet great again" initiative, Germany and France are inviting researchers from all over the world to cooperate with German and French partners to advance sustainability research in the following fields:

1. Research on climate change
2. Research for the energy transition
3. Research to understand the Earth system.

Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the programme is conducted by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Fellows of the programme will be given the opportunity to set up their own research group at a German university or research institution for a period of four years.

Both junior and senior researchers of all nationalities who have not resided in Germany in the last two years can apply.
