France and Germany are jointly supporting research aimed at contributing to achieving the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.

France and Germany have joined forces to combat climate change with an ambitious programme addressing the fields of climate, energy and earth system research. Both experienced and junior scientists throughout the world have been invited to engage in sustainability research activities in these fields in the two countries. The aim is to contribute to the implementation of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement and boost German and French research related to achieving the Agreement’s climate goals.

The Franco-German Fellowship Programme on Climate, Energy and Earth System Research is conceived for a period of four years, and the German Government is supporting it with 15 million euros. This money will be spent on facilitating research activities at German universities and extra-university institutions conducted by teams established by successful applicants. International researchers applying for support are required to have spent at least the last two years abroad.

The new fellowship programme was already announced by Germany’s Minister of Education and Research Johanna Wanka and her French counterpart Frédérique Vidal at the German-French Council of Ministers in July, as part of the French initiative “Make our planet great again”.
