Description of modules

Module 1: Strategic meetings at the collaboration partner’s organization

The aim of this module is that the partners use the meetings to develop joint activities such as research projects or summer schools. In addition they can use the meetings to prepare joint applications for third party funding (such as international research training groups). One focus of the activities discussed at the meetings should be on the mobility and networking of doctoral researchers.

Scope of funding:

The funding provided through the International Collaboration Package covers travel and subsistence expenses for up to two KIT scientists for a period of up to five days. The applicant has to be one of the two persons travelling. The other traveler has to at least have the status of a postdoc.

Payment arrangements:

Please note that the entire accounting for the travel expenses has to be made via KHYS. You may not hand in any bills at your institute! Due to processing time, all bills have to be handed in by November 30, 2017. Additional information concerning payment arrangements will be supplied along with the notification of approval.

 

 

Module 2: Networking meetings at KIT

The aim of this module is that scientists and doctoral researchers from KIT and the collaboration partner’s organization discuss joint research projects and ways of collaborating in the future. Another important aspect of the meetings is networking among participants. One focus of the activities discussed at the meetings should be on the mobility and networking of doctoral researchers.

Scope of funding:

The funding provided through the International Collaboration Package covers catering costs for these meetings. It is also possible to stage several meetings in one year. In total, a maximum of €1,000 can be funded.

Payment arrangements:

The bills have to be addressed directly to KHYS. Please note that KHYS can only pay for catering costs that are in accordance with the “KIT Bewirtungsrichtlinie”. Please note that due to processing times all bills have to be handed in by November 30, 2017. Additional information concerning payment arrangements will be supplied along with the notification of approval.

 

 

Module 3: Short-term stays of KIT doctoral researchers at the collaboration partner’s organization

This module aims at KIT doctoral researchers engaging in an intense scientific exchange with members of the collaboration partner’s organization. The doctoral researchers have to be members of KHYS.

Scope of funding:

The funding provided through the International Collaboration Package covers travel and subsistence expenses for a stay of two to six weeks. The expenses will be paid out according to the flat-rate sums stipulated by DAAD. There will be no accounting according to the actual costs incurred. The flat-rate travel allowances depend on the target country of the trip (see file IPID4all 5 – Download). The subsistence allowances will be paid according to the duration of the stay on the basis of flat-rate daily or monthly allowances (see file IPID4all 7 - Download).

Payment arrangement:

KHYS will pay out the flat-rate allowances to the doctoral researchers before the trip takes place. Should the actual length of stay be shorter than indicated in the application form for the trip KHYS will be entitled to reclaim the surplus. Please make sure that we receive the application forms in good time. Additional information concerning payment arrangements will be supplied along with the notification of approval. Please note that the trip has to be completed by December 18, 2017 at the latest. 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.


 

 

Please note for all three modules:

  • Due to calculations using estimates of costs, it may happen that the approved funds do not fully cover the expenses for the individual modules. In this case, KHYS may reclaim the surplus.
  • Non-compliance with the stipulations of the International Collaboration Package may induce KHYS to withdraw the funding approval, refuse payments, or reclaim payments that it has already made.
