The ERA Fellowships Programme
As part of the national strategy for the European Research Area (ERA) Germany is expanding its collaboration with the EU13 member states. These include Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Cyprus, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. The ERA Fellowships programme supports capacity building in the field of science management in the EU13 and strengthens networking with German research organisations and universities.
ERA Fellowships: The EU13 Fellows
During their guest stay at a German research institution or university (host institution) fellows participating in the programme gather practical experience in the field of scientific management. Fellows have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge within this field and exchange views on scientific management procedures and processes on an expert level. Before a fellowship begins a structured practice plan will be agreed upon in collaboration with the German host institution.
ERA Fellowships: German Host Institutions
In science international networking is an important criterion for success. The management and administration of scientific institutions plays a vital role in facilitating international cooperations of their researchers. The ERA Fellowships programme supports German scientific organizations and universities in establishing new or strengthening existing networks.
ERA Fellowships: Campus Weeks
In addition to the guest stay at a host organization the programme features a theoretical part. In two weeks on campus EU13 fellows and interested staff from host organizations will participate in a dedicated training programme on core aspects of science management and the European Research Area (ERA). This will be another opportunity to intensify professional exchange and networking. The Campus Weeks take place in Berlin and Bonn.
