Mobility Fund

The exchange with international scientists and building up one's own network is crucial for early career researchers. CEPLAS supports such exchanges and offers funding for research stays in another lab, research projects or exchange programmes, e.g. with (industrial) cooperation partners or for the active participation at workshops, summer schools, etc. 

Each CEPLAS member can apply for financial support from the mobility fund. It is also possible to provide financial support for research stays of external scientists at one of the CEPLAS institutions, given that the CEPLAS project leader covers a significant proportion of the costs. In case there are more applications as funding available, priority will be given to applications of early career researchers.

More details regarding the application procedure can be found in the member’s section.
