International Collaboration Package

KHYS aims at increasing the number of KIT doctoral researchers who make a research stay abroad. This is why we have launched the pilot project International Collaboration Package. The objective of the package is to promote the mobility and networking of doctoral researchers and sustainably establish these by means of fostering international collaborations. The International Collaboration Package is a modular funding scheme that consists of three different modules:


  • Module 1: Strategic meetings at the collaboration partner’s organization >> more
  • Module 2: Networking meetings at KIT >> more
  • Module 3: Short-term stays of KIT doctoral researchers at the collaboration partner’s organization >> more


The funding can cover one or several of the modules. However, the focus for every package has to be on Module 3. For the current call for applications, all of the planned activities have to take place within 2017. Please note that funding for activities that take place after November 1, 2017 can only be granted if the application for the second funding period for the Internationalization Program is approved by DAAD. Nevertheless all bills for Modules 1 and 2 have to be handed in by November 30, 2017.


Target group:
KIT professors, heads of KIT institutes or heads of a certified KIT junior research group.


Scope of funding:
The maximum sum for each funding package is €10,000. Each package can cover one or several of the three modules. However, the focus for every package has to be on Module 3. This means for example that the total sum of €10,000 could be used for Module 3.
More detailed information on the scope of funding for each module can be found here.


In addition a pdf file containing all information is available for printing.

This measure is promoted by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
