Testimonials

Find out what Networking Grant travellers say about their experience. The quotes are partly in English and partly in German.

"Planning a research trip during the pandemic was not easy at all, and I am glad that KHYS encouraged me to continue planning the respective networking trip.The KHYS networking grant enabled me to connect not only with other scientist, but also with another research field:
urban planning. The gained insights are a great enrichment for me personally, but especially for
my research on digital democracy and platform design. I am very thankful for the support!"

"Das KHYS-Networking-Grant hat mir sehr geholfen mich persönlich weiter zu entwickeln und durch die Zusammenarbeit mit meinem Zielkontakt konnte ich meine Arbeit stark voranbringen. Anfangs war ich mir unsicher ob, ich mich überhaupt bewerben soll, weil ich mir nicht ganz zugetraut habe alleine in einem fremden Land einen neuen Kontakt für den Arbeitskreis aufzubauen und dort über meine Forschung zu diskutieren. Durch gutes Zureden meiner Chefin habe ich mich aber dennoch getraut und durch die tolle Vorbereitung und finanzielle Unterstützung des KHYS ist der Auslandaufenthalt zu einem Erfolg geworden. Vielen Dank!"
