Hi Information on this arrived too late for me to do anything about it for 2004/05, and there is no guarantee at this stage that funding will be available for 2005/06, but i thought I'd circulate it anyhow. If any colleagues in Germany are interested in organizing a social simulation seminar/workshop in 2006, please contact me directly. Regards.

The Minister of Research, Science and Technology, through the International Science and Technology (ISAT) Linkages Fund, has allocated funding to the “NZ/DFG Programme” for 2004-05. Joint applications will be invited within the next few days, with New Zealand applications going to the Royal Society and German applications going to the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). Funding will be provided for joint seminars and workshops, in areas where the exchange of information promises to improve the level of co-operation between scientists of the two countries.  The joint seminars and workshops can be held in either country. The co-organisers are responsible for the scientific programme, the organisation and the financial management of the joint seminars and workshops.  It is expected that costs between $20,000 and $60,000 (GSTinclusive) will be sought for the proposed joint seminars and workshops.  Successful applicants will be required to provide a written report on the joint seminars and workshops detailing significant immediate and expected long-term outcomes from the activity. Deadline Monday 10 January 2005.
