D-A-CH Lead agency procedure

The German Research Foundation (DFG), the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) have agreed to follow a lead agency principle for research projects with participants of at least two of the three countries. The lead agency procedure clarifies roles and responsibilities of funding agencies involved in such projects. Most importantly, it requires funding agencies involved to accept evaluation of the transnational project proposal by one lead agency and fund those parts of the project that are being performed in their respective country.
