Current Calls for Applications 2020
Strategic Scientific Workshop Programme 2020
Application deadline: May 3, 2020
The University of Bayreuth Centre of International Excellence “Alexander von Humboldt” promotes excellent research at the University of Bayreuth (UBT) and advances the internationalisation of research and networking with the best universities worldwide.
Effective immediately, the Centre is offering funding for
Strategic Scientific Workshops
- open to all disciplines -
International Excellence – Programme Goals
The Centre supports academic exchange across existing boundaries: between disciplines, between different cultures and countries, between established and younger researchers. All Strategic Scientific Workshops are expected to deepen existing or establish new ties with international researchers from abroad with a clear objective to create sustainable pioneering research networks.
Experience Bayreuth – Collaboration with Strategic Partners
The Centre aims to strengthen excellent research as exemplified in its Focus Areas. We invite senior faculty members from UBT to cooperate with at least one international partner institution to submit a joint application for a subject-specific workshop with well-defined scientific and strategic objectives. The latter includes, for example, the development of sustainable scientific or teaching collaborations with international institutions, e.g. from the University’s strategic hubs or key regions. Support for each workshop is subject to an event’s complexity and partner location and may be granted up to 20,000 EUR.
We award the Strategic Scientific Workshops to applicants from UBT with challenging and innovative research projects of top academic quality through a highly competitive, strictly merit-based selection process. The all-important selection criteria are the academic excellence of the applicants and of the proposed cooperative workshop, as well as the strategic significance and sustainability of the endeavour. The workshops need to be conducted at Bayreuth for a minimum of two days to allow for networking opportunities on site. For more information on the application and selection process, see our Application Guidelines for Strategic Scientific Workshops.
Please submit your complete application via our online form (access via UBT ID) by May 3, 2020.
