Early networking within the scientific community is of overall importance for young researchers. The Graduate Academy offers doctoral students and Postdocs financial support for organizing workshops (scientific exchanges) and conferences with a subsidy of up to 4,000 Euro. This funding gives young researchers the possibility to thematically and methodically exchange with other young researchers and to integrate themselves and their topic into the research community. The amount of the awarded grant for organizing workshops and conferences depends on the following conditions:
- Promotion of smaller workshops for the purpose of scientific networking among themselves (lump sum: 300 Euro)
Each application should be lodged by a grouping made up of at least three doctoral students of Leibniz Universität Hannover. Applications are quarterly possible at the end of each quarter. The respective application deadlines are 31 March, 30 June, 30 September and 31 December. The Graduate Academy decides upon funding within about two weeks. It is not possible to apply funds for activities that have already been undertaken.
Selection criteria will include the scientific excellence of the applicants as well as a demonstration of the need (thematically, methodically, etc.) for the requested networking activity
- Promotion of self-organized conferences and meetings (according to the respective expenditures up to 4,000 Euro at the most)
Each application should be lodged by a grouping made up of at least three doctoral students of Leibniz Universität Hannover or by a grouping made up of at least two doctoral students and one young researcher (postdoctoral level) of Leibniz Universität Hannover. One of the doctoral students has to have the primary responsibility for overall organization. Applications for self-organized conferences or meetings are possible at the end of the semester. Application deadlines are 31 March and 30 September, respectively. Applications are selected on the basis of a scientific evaluation within about six to eight weeks. It is not possible to apply funds for activities that have already been undertaken.
Selection criteria will include the scientific excellence of the applicants, a clear linking of the respective dissertation topics with the conference topic in terms of content and methodology. The focus of the conference should be of relevance for young researchers.
