BritInn Fellowship Programme
The “BritInn Fellowship Programme” offers funding opportunities for incoming and outgoing researchers:
The “BritInn Fellowship Programme – INCOMING” supports outstanding academic staff – especially early-career researchers – of all disciplines from universities and research institutions in Great Britain for a short-term stay (up to two weeks) at the University of Innsbruck to promote collaboration and joint research projects.
BritInn Fellows devote their time in Innsbruck to research and to work on a joint research project with colleagues from the LFUI. Reimbursement of travel and/or living expenses will be given depending upon the scope of the assignment, the qualification of the candidate, and available funds.
Applications can be submitted to BritInn by any academic staff member of the University of Innsbruck from any faculty who wants to invite a colleague from Great Britain to Innsbruck.
BritInn Fellows are expected to be in residence for the duration of their stay. The program does not support, off-side research. BritInn Fellows are expected to give a public guest lecture during their stay in Innsbruck about their research, which is organised by BritInn, in cooperation with the hosting department.
The fellowships are designed to promote academic exchange, enhance the visibility of outstanding scholars from Great Britain in Innsbruck and to give the university community and the general public the opportunity to get insight into the research conducted by the Fellows.
The “BritInn Fellowship Programme – OUTGOING” invites all academic staff from the University of Innsbruck to spend time (up to two weeks) at a university or research institution in Great Britain to promote collaboration and joint research projects.
BritInn Fellows devote their time at the host institution to do research and to work on a joint research project with colleagues from Great Britain. BritInn will cover travel and/or living costs, depending upon the quality of the application.
The applications can be made directly to BritInn.
BritInn Fellows are expected to be in residence at the host institution for the duration of the stay. BritInn Fellows are also expected to give a public guest lecture at the host institution about their research and/or the research project envisaged.
The fellowships are designed to promote the academic exchange, enhance the visibility of outstanding scholars from the University of Innsbruck in Great Britain and, first and foremost, enhance further long-lasting future collaboration.
