EuroTech funds one to four-week research stays to increase cooperation between researchers at its partner universities. You can apply to this visiting programme if you:

  • Want to visit one of the following universities:
    Technical University of Denmark – DTU
    École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne – EPFL
    École Polytechnique – L’X
    Technion – Israel Institute of Technology
    Eindhoven University of Technology – TU/e
    Technical University of Munich – TUM

  • Have a permanent position/tenure track position at one of the EuroTech partner universities
    This is to ensure maintenance of the relation to the partner university.

  • Want to find a simple way of financing a visit to a partner university
    One week at a partner university is funded with up to €1,000, which can be used for e.g. travel and accommodation. You can apply for 1-4 weeks.

If you do not have a contact at one of these universities, your local Operations Board member can help you identify relevant peers. Please initiate this well in advance of the deadline.

Timeline

Deadline is 1 April 2022. Answers to all applicants will be sent out no later than 1 May 2022. The visit and all administrative matters concerning reimbursement must be completed in 2022.

!! In 2023, there will be a new call for applications. Please check back in early 2023 and/or subscribe to our news service and/or follow us on social media to stay tuned.

How to apply

The application process is simple: Fill out this template and send it with a support letter from your host to your local EuroTech Operations Board member.

Assessment criteria

The home university gives the highest score to applications with a new relation and collaboration within EuroTech’s Focus Areas:

  • Entrepreneurship & Innovation
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • AI for Engineering Systems
  • Health & Bioengineering
  • Sustainable Society.

Also, applications that contain collaboration with more than one partner university, e.g. two researchers from different partner universities visiting a third partner university, are ranked higher. However, bilateral collaboration is very much appreciated. Assessment of application and funding is handled at your home university.
