I am glad to inform you that the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) published a call on "Sustainable development of urban regions". Funding will be provided in particular for cooperation with rapidly growing cities and urban regions in developing and emerging countries.
The aim of the funding measure is to develop and test locally-adapted strategies for the sustainable development of urban regions and to encourage the strategies' permanent implementation in order to improve ecological factors (emissions, energy and resources efficiency, etc.) and increase urban resilience. This funding call is initially limited to the target regions of Southeast Asia (ASEAN countries) and China.
The application procedure for preparation projects with partners in south-east Asia (exploratory measures and feasibility studies) consists of two phases. The preparation projects will cover periods of up to six months and receive funding of up to €40,000. Dateline for preparation projects with target countries in Southeast Asia is 25 April 2017.
Kindly find attached the English version of the call text.
Eligible for funding are German institutions as outlined under chap. 3. Vietnamese institutions interested should notify potential German partners about this opportunity in order to strengthen cooperation.
In case you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact Sophie Knebel (
