  1. The focus of the Priority Programme are patterns whose coherence does not stop at the natural scale, such as the boundary layer height, but extends over much larger scales. Currently very little is known about the origins, dynamics, and impact of superstructures on turbulent flow properties. The aim of the Priority Programme is to integrate the different recent advances to arrive at a comprehensive characterisation and understanding of turbulent superstructures. New groups considering applying are asked to submit a description of the planned project by 30 November 2018 to the scientific coordinator. The deadline for proposal submission is 27 February 2019.
  2. The Polish National Science Centre (NCN) and the DFG are announcing a call for proposals within the joint funding scheme "Beethoven". The “Beethoven CLASSIC 3” call is open to research projects in the humanities, social sciences, chemistry, mathematics, physics (including astronomy) and material sciences. With “Beethoven LIFE 1” joint Polish-German research projects in the life sciences will be accepted for the first time. Proposals must be submitted by 17 December 2018.
  3. The Arts and Humanities Research Councils together with the DFG will launch a bilateral call for collaborative research proposals. It will be open to applications addressing any research topic, where there is significant potential to advance knowledge through collaborative research bringing together arts and humanities researchers in the UK and humanities (including law and linguistics) researchers in Germany. Proposals must be written in English. The detailed call for proposals is planned for October 2018 with a deadline on 20 February 2019.
  4. The Priority Programme wants to develop a crossdisciplinary research platform in Germany for the investigation and exploitation of the extraordinary interaction properties of quantum systems in highly excited Rydberg states. It addresses not only fundamental questions relying on Rydberg interactions in few and many-body systems, quantum nonlinear optics and surface science but also applications in various fields of classical and quantum technology as well as metrology. Proposals must be written in English and submitted to the DFG by 4 February 2019.
  5. To facilitate the support of collaborative work between German and Russian research groups, the DFG (German Research Foundation) and the Russian Science Foundation (RSF) have opened the possibility for joint German-Russian project proposals for the funding period 2020–2022 in all fields of science. Collaborations of research teams from both countries are invited to submit joint proposals. In accordance with the full proposal target date of the RSF proposals to the DFG should be submitted not later than 10 December 2018.
