Euroscience Open Forum 2006: Humboldt Foundation presents sponsorship opportunities
Careers workshop on 18 July in the Deutsches Museum in Munich
What sponsorship opportunities are open to scientists and scholars who want to spend time researching abroad? How can they find the right job for themselves or the appropriate fellowship? What do they have to watch out for at immigration and what are the implications of interrupting work in Germany for their pensions? The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation's careers workshop at the "Euroscience Open Forum 2006" (ESOF 2006) will provide the answers and help to pinpoint the right people to contact on all the issues involved in researcher mobility. Together with the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the Humboldt Foundation will present a broad spectrum of fellowship programmes, job centres and useful sources of information for mobile researchers.
"Sponsoring international mobility of young researchers: opportunities and orientation"
Time: Tuesday, 18 July, 2.30 to 5 pm
Venue: Forum am Deutschen Museum, Room "Selene".
ESOF provides a platform for academics from all over Europe to exchange ideas across the disciplines and discuss scientific policy problems. Every other year, a different city hosts this pan-European forum for exchange on science, politics and society. Following the initial event in Stockholm in 2004, this time Munich was the successful candidate. More than 2,000 researchers from all over Europe are expected to attend.
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation annually enables more than 1800 researchers from all over the world to spend time researching in Germany. The Foundation maintains a network of some 23,000 Humboldtians from all disciplines in 130 countries worldwide - including 40 Nobel Prize winners.
