The funding opportunity is intended to give young researchers the opportunity to implement already planned networking meetings (workshops/small group meetings) or to launch networking initiatives. These can be internal, regional, national or international. The funding serves as an impetus for young researchers to establish their own networks in the medium and long term and, based on this, to seek third-party funding for a young researchers' network (e.g. from the DFG).
Upon application, networks or network initiatives can be supported with a maximum of 800 euros per year. The funds are available for workshop or conference costs, travel expenses and, if applicable, for fee contracts of invited guests. Meal costs and daily allowances cannot be financed.
The support is initially granted for 12 months. Further funding is possible.
APPLICATION AND AWARDING
Applications can be submitted at any time.
The award decision is made after the application has been reviewed by the Research and Graduate Service by a vote of a member of the Senate Committee for Research and Graduate Development.
