The Bonn-based AvH established TransCoop in 1990 to promote transatlantic research cooperation. In July 1994 the GAAC took over the management of the program. The AvH, one of the seven science organizations affiliated with the GAAC, will remain the sponsoring institution of TransCoop.
Projects selected for funding can receive a total of DM 90,000 (US $60,000) each. Funding has to be applied for in German currency (D-Mark). The maximum duration of sponsorship for each project is three years. TransCoop funds have to be equally matched by funds from U.S. sources. The amount and sources of the matching funds must be detailed in the application and have to be confirmed before TransCoop funding commences.
Complete applications materials and more information about the German-American Academic Council are on the GAAC web site (http://www.access.digex.net/~gaac/gaachome.html).
