What options are available?

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:

Subsistence costs: €1750 per month for an experienced researcher or €2000 per month for a full professor.

Travel costs:

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.


After granting, the funds should be used within one year of date of approval.
