Franco-German University – Scientific events for junior researchers


The Franco-German University (FGU) promotes events for junior researchers (PhD students and post-docs) aimed at supporting networking among researchers and developing Franco-German and international scientific dialogue. These events bring together young scientists from both countries (and possibly from third countries as well) at research workshops, summer or winter schools and present a forum for an exchange of ideas on joint research topics.

Applications can be submitted for three funding periods per year by the following deadlines: 15.03., 15.06. and 15.10. The assessment process generally takes around four months.
