Funding Conference Participations for Postdocs up to two years after completing their PhD
The Research School would like to support Postdocs up to two years after the completion of their Ph.D. to go to important national and/or international conferences in their fields. They can apply for a conference support up to max. 2000 euros per conference to present the results of their Ph.D. projects or their recent Postdoc project. The conference must have an international orientation and the Postdocs have to give a talk. Additional activities as a poster presentation, moderations, etc. are welcome. Postdocs can be funded twice within this programme.
