Description: The fall Funding Webinar Series is an initiative by the German Alliance for Global Health Research (GLOHRA) to connect this community to key funders in the global health space. On 3 November from 12:00-13:00 CET the German Research Foundation (DFG) will provide an overview of their funding programs which are especially relevant for early- and mid-career researchers. In particular, the team will introduce the Emmy Noether and Heisenberg Programmes as well as the DFG Research Unit and other programs.

The DFG is a major research funder in Germany with several key programs supporting researchers at various stages of their career. The Emmy Noether Programme aids early-career researchers in establishing independent research groups, while the Heisenberg Program assists experienced researchers in advancing their independent work. Additionally, the DFG Research Units facilitate interdisciplinary, long-term research initiatives on specific topics, often bringing together researchers from various institutions for cutting-edge projects. These programs as well as others collectively contribute to supporting excellent research in Germany, including on many topics relevant for global health.

A best practice example from a DFG Research Unit will be introduced by Oliver Razum. Find more information about the project: ⁠FOR 2928: Refugee migration to Germany: a magnifying glass for broader public health challenges (PH-LENS)(2019-23).
