Funding for Lower Saxony-Scotland research tandems

2021-06-22 Lüneburg. The European Centre for Advanced Studies (ECAS) at Leuphana University Lüneburg announces the launch of the Lower Saxony - Scotland Tandem Fellowship Programme. It is aimed at researchers who have completed their PhD within the last 10 years and have an employment contract with a Scottish or Lower Saxon higher education institution. The programme offers an excellent opportunity to conduct research in a transnational exchange at the most recognised universities in Lower Saxony and Scotland. The tandem concept involves two researchers from both regions forming a tandem and working on a joint project. Short-term stays of up to six months in the partner region are funded with 1,200 euros per person and month.

Applications can be submitted until 31 August 2021. An Open Call for Applications and further information on the programme, the application process and the list of participating institutions (which is constantly being expanded) can be found at:
