TU-Nachwuchsring Mobility Funding

Several times a year Ph.D. students, postdocs and junior professors can apply for funding supporting conference travels and research stays (max. 2000€ per person in a year). 

In case of the approval of the funding, the TU-Nachwuchsring will cover a portion of conference travel expenses and participation fees. Active conference participation (i.e. giving a talk or presenting a poster) will preferably be funded.

New: Support for the costs of individual childcare as a complementary measure to mobility funding

The TU-Nachwuchsring wants to support young scientists with children to participate in national and international congresses and conferences and external research stays. In this context, the TU-Nachwuchsring offers the option of a partial reimbursement of costs for individual childcare, which can be applied for as a complementary measure within mobility funding. Please contact us if you are interested.
