Network for the promotion of young scientists

TU-Nachwuchsring research funding

TU Kaiserslautern wants to actively promote the visibility of its young scientists. That is why the TU-Nachwuchsring is calling for applications for research funding for postdocs, junior group leaders 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 scientific work, such as conducting out experiments and/or simulations, traveling to cooperation partners at other universities or research institutions, financing assistants or for material resources that are not covered by the core funding (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.
