Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to apply for the uni-internal funding of Early Stage Researcher Networks.
This funding opportunity intends to give early stage researchers the opportunity to implement already planned networking meetings (workshops, small group meetings etc.) or to launch new network initiatives. Those can be internal, regional, national or even international. The funding serves as an stimulus for early stage researchers to establish their own medium or long term networks and, based on this, seeking for third-party fundings for early stage researcher networks (e.g. from the DFG).
Networks or network initiatives can be supported with a maximum of 800 EUR per year. The funds can be used for workshops or conference costs, travel expenses and, if applicable, for fee contracts of guest lecturers. Meal costs or daily allowances cannot be financed.
The support is initially granted for 12 months. Onward funding is possible.
APPLICATION AND AWARDING
Applications can be submitted at any time at the Research and Graduate Services.
The award decision is made after the application has been reviewed by the Research and Graduate Services by a vote of a member of the Senate Committee for Research and Graduate Development.
