The "CLIENT II - International Partnerships for Sustainable Innovation" funding measure is part of the FONA strategy of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The funding focuses on application-oriented joint research projects in the areas of resources, energy, climate, the environment and development with the aim of reducing environmental impact, making sustainable use of resources and creating access to clean energy.
All funded projects are supported by the Client2Works accompanying scientific project as well as by targeted coordination, networking and general public relations work. In addition, accompanying project Science-Policy Interface (SPI) ensures that the project results become part of the international environmental dialogue. Local contact points are project offices in Central Asia, Vietnam and China.
