Sustainability and Impact of Funding Initiatives for International Postdocs – Effects on Individuals, Institutions and Society

Projekt aim

What individual, institutional and societal effects do fellowship programmes for internationally mobile researchers have after their doctorate and how sustainable are they? In order to investigate these questions comprehensively, the programme modes "Incoming", "Outgoing" and "Capacity Building", which are offered by two research funding institutions in Germany - the Volkswagen Foundation and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH Foundation) - for the promotion of long-​term stays abroad by postdocs, will be explored.
