Network for the promotion of young scientists

TU-Nachwuchsring research funding

TU Kaiserslautern wants to actively promote the visibility of its young scholarly talent. That is why, as part of the TU-Nachwuchsring, it is calling for applications for research funding for post-doctoral students and junior professors from every department at TU Kaiserslautern.

The goal is to support applicants as they prepare to apply for outside funding that will be earmarked for projects at TU Kaiserslautern. The outside funding application must be submitted no later than a year after the support has started. The funds requested through the TU- Nachwuchsring application may be used for preliminary scholarly work, such as conducting experiments and/or simulations, travel to meet with cooperation partners at other universities or research institutions, financing for assistants, expenditures for relevant equipment, or the like (up to €10.000 per application).

Funding cannot be used for travels to conferences (see funding line mobility funding) or to pay for the applicant’s own position.
