Financial Support for DFG-Funded Research during the Coronavirus Pandemic

In view of the continuing adverse effects of the coronavirus pandemic, the DFG Joint Committee has approved an extension of financial support for DFG-funded research projects approved last year in addition to an expansion of measures in certain programme areas.


Each PI of a FFlexCom project can individually apply until June 21st 2021 for a project extension as well as additional personnel and material funds, to compensate delays caused by the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

The required application form is the DFG Form 41.48, which has to be submitted via the elan-portal. More information can be found here, where specifically section „Research Groups and Priority Programmes“ is releveant.
