"Today we release the results of another joint call with our German partners from the Helmholtz Association. In last three years, we funded in total 18 projects so currently more than 200 scientists from Russia and Germany are working together to achieve common research goals in the frontiers of science. The first results of that work were presented to the public earlier this May in Sochi at the international conference "Science of the Future - Science of the Youth". We are ready to develop this practice together with our German partners in the future. We also started the negotiations about a new wave of joint funding initiatives", commented the status of RSF-Helmholtz cooperation Sergey Konovalov, RSF international coordinator.
