Invitations for fled scientists and academics through the Leibniz Programme


Various scientific institutions, such as the GRF (German Research Foundation), are currently offering scientists, who are being threatened in their home countries or became refugees, the opportunity to visit German Universities for a research stay or to join existing projects.

As part of their internationalisation agenda, the Leibniz programme, too, is providing funding to allow such guest invitations.

In the course of these invitations, the rule stands that invited scientists need to contribute to the graduate education of the Research Academy. Public events on the current situation of scientists or the general situation of the scientists’ countries of origin are very welcome as well.

About the Research Academy

The Research Academy is the central institution for the promotion of junior scientists at Leipzig University. Through its three Graduate Centres – Mathematics/Computer Science and Natural Sciences, Life Sciences, and Humanities and Social Sciences – the Academy consolidates all interdisciplinary and structured doctoral programmes at Leipzig University.

At the Competence School, the Research Academy offers programmes tailored specifically to the needs of doctoral researchers and postdocs, so as to assist them in preparing for careers both in academia and outside of it.

In the Leibniz Programme, the Research Academy promotes international, interdisciplinary, and intergenerational exchange in a "temporary learning community".
