Bonn, (PresseBox) - The research funding organisations of France (ANR), Germany (DFG), The Netherlands (NWO) and the United Kingdom (ESRC) are delighted to launch a new multi-lateral collaboration with the NSFC in China consisting of a joint research programme on two basic societal challenges:

- Consumer Behaviour and Lifestyles in a Green Economy

Understanding Population Change
- Changing Life Course
- Urbanisation and Migration
- Labour Markets and Social Security Dynamics
- Methodology, Modelling and Forecasting
- Care Provision
- Comparative Policy Learning

Applications should address one or more of the priority areas under either "Green Economy" or "Understanding Population Change" in a coherent programme of innovative research. Applications should include leading European researchers wishing to develop contacts with leading researchers from universities or institutions in China. Projects should involve participation from at least two different participating European countries and at least two universities or institutions from China which are eligible to apply at NSFC.

The call, its decision procedure and funding mechanisms will be based on the Open Research Area for Social Sciences (ORA), a process established on international standards. Funding will be distributed among the partners according to the place of work of the researchers, and according to the funding rules of each individual agency. Proposals should be up to three years in duration and must start on 1 July 2014. Resources requested can include travel and subsistence expenses of the investigators, as well as normally permitted costs such as investigator and research staff salary costs.

This call is now open. The closing date of the call will be 3 December 2013.
