Research collaboration is considered an important means to strengthen the research capacity of institutions in priority countries. In order for research partners to benefit from the collaboration, partnerships should be equal, and partners should be able to contribute actively to preparing both Phase 1 and Phase 2 applications. Research applications which have been prepared without the active involvement of partners in priority countries or Denmark will not be approved. Other important aspects of equal partnerships include joint fieldwork, joint publishing, knowledge sharing, access to databases and libraries, etc. It is strongly encouraged to involve partners from the private sector and national authorities in the partner country or in Denmark in the research project, and grant funding can be used for their direct work input and expenses in relation to the project activities. Such partners are encouraged to contribute with additional resources (funding or in-kind) for the projects. International research institutions and research institutions in countries outside Denmark and outside the partner countries can be included as subcontractors and can be supported by the grant for their direct services to the project activities.
Support to PhD students is considered an important part of research capacity strengthening. The application should indicate the intentions for the involvement of PhD students in the project, as well as the involvement of post-doc and other researchers.
PhD candidates from the priority countries included in the project must seek enrolment at a university in their home country, alternatively at a university in the region of the partner country. Enrolment in Denmark can only be considered if enrolment in the partner country or the partner country region is not possible, and if sufficient justification for this is provided. More details will be provided in the Call for Phase 2 applications for the prequalified applicants.
