As new programme offer the Anneliese Maier Research Award was established.
In the context of the TransCoop Programme, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation supports transatlantic research cooperation between German, American and/or Canadian scholars in the humanities, social sciences, economics, and law. Joint research initiatives can receive up to €55,000 over a three-year period. Prerequisite is that the American and/or Canadian partners raise matching funds equalling at least the amount granted by TransCoop.
Funds can be used to finance short-term research visits lasting up to three months, to organise conferences and workshops, for material and equipment and printing costs, as well as for a limited amount of research assistance. Up to 15 p.c. of the TransCoop funds granted can be earmarked for the German partner institution and used as an administrative lump-sum.
