Overview:

The Nottbeck foundation invites applications from researchers, or research groups that wish to capitalise on, and obtain added value from, collaborations with large-scale international projects. This might, for example, involve added research efforts through the participation in large-scale field and laboratory experiments, or participation in synthesis work.

Such large-scale research projects may provide the opportunity and logistical framework for additional studies funded by Nottbeck to strengthen joint international research efforts, enhance synergy between research groups and further increase international collaboration.

Applications should clearly demonstrate how enhanced synergy might be provided through collaboration with the suggested international research consortia. In addition, applicants will need to provide a letter of invitation from the project leader of the relevant research project to participate in the research activities.
