Research Group Linkage Programme.

The aim of this alumni programme is to build a sustainable basis for long-term international academic collaboration, also integrating (doctoral and post-doctoral) junior researchers who are potential candidates for an Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation research fellowship. The Research Group Linkage Programme combines various activities that lead to a long-term collaboration between alumni of the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation working at a research institution abroad (please see current list of countries published on our website) and German academics.

Joint research projects can be sponsored to the value of 55,000 EUR over a period of up to three years. The funding may be used to finance reciprocal research visits lasting up to three months, conferences and workshops, consumables, printing costs, and, to a limited extent, research assistants and equipment for the institute abroad. Up to 15% of the funding may be utilized as an administrative lump-sum for the German partner institute.

Información y asistencia para investigadores:
El portal provee información práctica sobre la vida profesional y cotidiana, así como información sobre oportunidades de empleo y de financiación.

Se puede consultar también el  Motor de búsqueda de instituciones e investigadores en Alemania: En la mayoría de los programas de becas, corresponde al investigador encontrar una institución adecuada y un investigador anfitrión. En Alemania es una práctica común contactarse con los investigadores, por carta o por correo electrónico, a pesar de no conocerlos personalmente, y preguntarles si estarían interesados en cooperar.
