Funds for Internationalization

CIC provides in a flexible and non-bureaucratic way funds for internationalization.

In order to ensure that the proposed mechanisms for networking suit the needs of Freie Universität Berlin researchers and lecturers, CIC surveyed Freie Universität faculty about their needs for support in initiating international cooperation. CIC is closing the current gap in the university’s funding portfolio for international exchange by concentrating on short-term fellowships and support for temporary assignments with the purpose of initiating new international collaboration.

 The following support options are currently available:

  • Short-term funds for outgoing PhD students and researchers

  • Short-term funds for incoming PhD students and researchers

  • Funds for mobility to initiate international projects

  • Funds for publications on ongoing international activities, international marketing and PR

  • Funds for fact-finding missions (visit to a foreign university with high cooperation potential for several departments)

  • Funds for alumni activities abroad

There is no deadline in applying for these funds.
