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...

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.
