Visits by outstanding, foreign researchers with a minimum of 2 weeks and a maximum of 6 months are supported. Longer-term visits are normally preferred over short-term visits. Grants can be requested to help to meet the costs of subsistence and travel. The following rates apply:
Subsistence costs: €1750 per month for an experienced researcher or €2000 per month for a full professor.
Travel costs: The maximum amount of grant depends on the country in which the researcher is appointed. For researchers based in Europe the maximum is €500, for researchers based outside Europe €1500 (based on the cost of second class rail or tourist class air travel). There is no compensation for consumables or other research costs.
