DAAD-Projekt "GradUS global"

Doktorandinnen und Doktoranden, die wissenschaftliche Konferenzen im Ausland besuchen oder Forschungsaufenthalte bzw. Praktika im Ausland absolvieren wollen, können sich bei GradUS global um eine finanzielle Unterstützung bewerben.
Außerdem können sie internationale Workshops bzw. kleine Konferenzen durchführen oder renommierte ausländische Wissenschaftler zu Gastvorträgen einladen.
Auch die Förderung von fachspezifischen Kursen oder Workshops ist möglich.

Das Projekt bietet allerdings nicht nur reine Finanzierungsmöglichkeiten, sondern auch eine Plattform für intensiven Austausch zwischen Doktoranden/innen und Professoren/innen aller Fachrichtungen.
