Funding Conditions: Bonn International Fellowships

What is the goal of the grant program?

This grant program is designed for the invitation of excellent researchers from all areas of specialization to spend a short period of time at the University of Bonn (up to 12 days). Preference will be given to scholars from strategic partner universities and universities in priority countries for international collaboration.

The University of Bonn in the Context of Europe

Located in the heart of Europe, the University is centrally positioned both geographically and in terms of its mission and relationships. As an institution of the European Higher Education and Research Area, the University has introduced permanent structures implementing European academic reforms. The European Higher Education Area enhances cross-border transparency and comparability for academic course credit and degrees. This facilitates academic mobility but also keeps the University of Bonn abreast of international developments, including the emerging international higher education standards.

Increasing collaboration with partners in the European landscape of academic research and teaching is a primary objective for the University of Bonn. The University is increasing its efforts to receive European research funding, and will be making use of European Union programs for expanding mobility and networking in higher education. In collaboration with select partner universities, the University works to realize the idea of Europe ever more perfectly, in part through cultural exchange, mobility and language-learning initiatives. In this context, Neurotech the European University of Brain and Technology serves as a model project. The EU Project Office is at the center of all advice and support measures for activities in the EU.
