Research Alumni visit KIT - "Reunion Grants"



Extend your research collaborations and invite former guest researchers from abroad (research alumni) to return to KIT for a research stay!

The International Scholars and Welcome Office (IScO) offers scientists of KIT the opportunity to re-invite guest researchers as “research alumni of KIT” for a short stay at KIT. For this, we will award re-invitation grants (reunion grants) of one to a maximum of two months’ duration.

Eligible to apply are all professors and postdocs of KIT that would like to re-invite a merited international researcher with a KIT background (research alumni) as a host, as well as research alumni of KIT (in agreement with the host).

Funding Period:

Re-invitation of merited research alumni for a research stay of one to two months at KIT to carry out a research project with the host, to jointly set up and publish a scientific paper, or to jointly apply for funding for a joint research project with a funding organization. Future joint research collaborations and exchanges of early-stage researchers are explicitly desired.

Applications can be submitted until July 12, 2020.
