To enhance the visibility of research in Bremen, scientists of the University of Bremen can receive subsidies for the participation in high ranking conferences.
WHO CAN APPLY? Doctoral candidates accepted by the respective doctoral committee (Promotionsausschuss), Postdocs, (Senior) Researcher and Lecturer and Professors at University of Bremen can apply.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS? Grant-worthy is the active participation in a conference, e.g. speech or poster, at a high ranking national or international conference.
FUNDING CONDITIONS: Preference will be given to applications from researchers in the qualification phase and to international conferences. Further priority goes to applications with no connection to current, third-party funded projects that dispose of sufficient funds to finance the proposed travel. Due to the current situation, subsidies to the conference fees can be applied for online conferences.
During the course of their research project, PhD candidates may apply twice for grants up to a maximum of €1,500 (including any funding in the funding line Impulse Grants for Research Projects); all other applicants may submit one application per year up to an amount of €2,500. Due to limited funds, a maximum of one grant per person per calendar year is possible in the funding line Impulse Grands for research projects or in the funding line Conference Participation.
PROCEDURE: The Central Research Development Fund uses lump sums in this funding line. The decision on these applications is made by the Research Funding Committee´s Office.
