As soon as your application has been approved, you will be notified via e-mail. The notification of approval will contain information on the amount of funding that will be paid out and will cover all three modules. Attached to the e-mail there will be a Written Statement of Commitment that you have to sign and send back to us.
Also attached will be information sheets for the respective module(s). The obligation to comply with the regulations and processes mentioned in these sheets is a compulsory part of the International Collaboration Package.
Please note that for Module 3 every doctoral researcher will have to sign a separate Statement of Confirmation that we will send to them individually.
Once all activities funded by the International Collaboration Package have been completed, you have to submit a final report within four weeks. Doctoral researchers who stayed at the collaborations partner’s organization (Module 3) will also have to hand in a report within four weeks after their journey. Reporting obligations are a mandatory element for receiving funding within the framework of the International Collaboration Package. Templates for the reports can be downloaded below. In addition you as well as the doctoral researchers will be asked to participate in an online survey designed by DAAD at a later point in time.
It is also necessary that you notify us of the outcome resulting from the activities taking place within the framework of the International Collaboration Package (i.e. sustainable establishment of measures increasing the mobility and networking of doctoral researchers, successful application for third-party funding etc.). For a period of five years, we will therefore request you to send us a short status update once a year.
