Year of Science 2016-17

The Year of Science 2016-17 is an initiative led by the German Ministry for Education and Research. With the UK as its partner country, the motto for the Year of Science is Seas and Oceans. As part of the initiative, partner schools from the UK and Germany are invited to take part in joint projects on this theme, for which various funding opportunities are available.

Funding opportunities

Would you like to get involved in a joint thematic project with your German partner school? During the year of science, schools can apply to UK-German Connection for funding, which has been especially earmarked for activities, which tie in with the 'Sea and Oceans' theme. Several funding opportunities are available, including the Instant Impact, Challenge Fund and Partnerships in Learning programmes. For an overview, and further details on the programme guidelines and application forms, visit our funding pages.
