RUB Research School

Research Around the World

Realize Your International Research Activities with Us

RUB Research School offers a broad program of various funding lines to enable international mobility for RUB's early career researchers. We support you to do your Research Around the World. We provide you with funding opportunities to gain international experience abroad or on our campus, as we want you to create your own international network as early as possible in your career. This also includes the possibility for international researchers to be invited to RUB. Funding lines are open for all research areas. You may apply for multiple grants and we encourage you to combine different funding lines to expand your research experience and network.
