The programme seeks to contribute to the global dissemination of German research in the humanities and at the same time maintain and promote German as an academic language and a language of primary publication of works in the humanities. In addition, the programme promotes the translation of works in the humanities and social sciences into English and in justified individual cases into other languages as well. Only German publishers are eligible to apply for grants.
