Research Alumni are international researchers who have previously worked at Freie Universität as guest researchers and are now continuing their career in academia abroad.
With its Research Alumni Program, Freie Universität has intensified its outreach to former guest researchers in order to strengthen international research networks. To ensure the sustainability of these networks, the program offers funding for junior researchers from the teams of Freie Universität hosts and Research Alumni.
On the Alumni Network's webpage you will find more information regarding program goals, program components, and funding opportunities for projects with Research Alumni along with current Call for Applications.
