Welcome event for the new International Excellence Fellows on 11.07.2022

On Monday, July 11, Professor Dr. Thomas Hirth, Vice President for Transfer and International Affairs, welcomed nine new International Excellence Fellows at KIT. During the informal exchange in a relaxed atmosphere, the fellows and their host professors were able to establish interdisciplinary contacts and exchange information about projects and joint research endeavours. 

More than 30 renowned foreign researchers have been awarded an International Excellence Fellowship so far. The project "International Excellence Grants (IEG)" was announced for the first time at KIT at the end of 2020 as part of the funding of the excellence university concept "The Research University in the Helmholtz Association/ Living the Change". With the IEGs, KIT scientists can invite outstanding colleagues from abroad in an uncomplicated and timely manner and thus strengthen their international cooperation and academic networks.
