The focus lies on the professionalisation of science management - especially in the more recent EU member states.
The superordinate objective of this measure is to strengthen the scientific performance and the innovation potential of the European Research Area (ERA).
Applications are welcome from research institutions and research funding organizations based in Germany. They must be willing to host an “ERA Fellow” for a period of 8 to 12 weeks for a practical stay. A partnering tool will be made available on the ERA Fellowships website to match German host institutions and potential ERA Fellows from an EU 13 member state.
Optionally the funding measure can be implemented in a tandem version, which means that a host stay in an EU 13 state can also be funded. Parts of the measure are two campus weeks - in Bonn and Berlin - with an interesting program on science management, European research funding and other aspects of the European Research Area, leaving room for intense exchange and networking.
The funding announcement of “ERA Fellowships - Science Management” was published on April 17, 2019. The call for applications ends on June 19, 2019. The host stays as well as the two campus weeks will take place in 2020.
