Project International EVENT = PR.INT EVENT

Aim

Aim

With PR.INT Event you can organize your own international event at RUB. This can be a conference, a workshop, a symposium or a summer school.

The aim of PR.INT Event is to give our doctoral researchers the opportunity to establish and expand their own international network and to internationalize their research. The funding line intends to increase the visibility of both researchers and RUB alike. The doctoral researchers are given the opportunity to organize highly individual events based on their needs to benefit their research.

You can submit an application as a single applicant or as a group application with other doctoral students. All applications have to be written in English. Please contact Dr. Sarah Gemicioglu if you have any question.
