The DZL offers DZL Academy Mobility Grants:


The scheme aims to strengthen the training opportunities of DZL early career scientists by supporting visits to DZL-related research groups for training in specific techniques or for scientific exchange within the framework of a collaborative project. In exceptional cases (for example, training in specific methods not available at DZL sites), visits to non-DZL labs will also be eligible for funding.

Am I eligible to apply?

All DZL Academy Fellows are eligible for application.

What is the scheme’s value and tenure?

The DZL Mobility Grant provides funding towards travel and subsistence expenses for short visits for training purposes or scientific exchange. Applicants may request up to 3000 €. The mobility grant scheme is open to applications all year round.

What is the application process?

Applications must be submitted via e-mail to the DZL Academy Mobility Grant coordinator Dr. Jörn Bullwinkel (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
