Regional Network PSI Plus

The Regional Network PSI Plus is a network of partners from Baden-Württemberg and Alsace  to provide better support to threatened researchers in the region. Within this cross-border cooperation, the development of long-term perspectives of researchers (e.g. after expiration of funding programs such as Philipp Schwartz scholarships) is to be strengthened.

 

SAR Germany and further Regional Networks

The PSI Plus Network is one of the regional networks under the umbrella of SAR Germany the German Section of the global Scholars at Risk Network (SAR Network).

SAR Germany , founded in 2016, is composed of German universities, research institutions and science organizations that campaign to support and offer sanctuary to researchers under threat as well as to protect academic freedom. KIT is one of the founding members of SAR Germany.

The partners of the PSI Plus Network offer support to researchers at risk (for contacts see list below). At KIT please contact the International Scholars and Welcome Office (IScO).
