Self-financed Research

Self-financed research and stays financed by third parties

Scholars who are not applying for an Institute Grant, but rather wish to spend time at the Institute at their own expense or on the basis of third-party financing, may at any time request permission to do so from one of the Directors (please contact: ). The request should be accompanied by

  • a curriculum vitae in tabular form (indicating nationality, home university and contact address);
  • a short list of selected publications (1-2 pages);
  • a short sketch of the research project (topic, project description and research plan);
  • the proposed time for conducting research at the Institute (dates of arrival and departure);
  • a brief information about the form of financing;
  • and, in the case of junior academics (PhD candidates, doctoral students, etc.), two references containing significant details about the applicant and her/his project.

Applications for a self-financed research visit or for a research financed by third parties shall be submitted by e-mail together with the required documents and information to no later than four weeks prior to the intended research stay.

Applications for a confirmation of research facilities also serving as a host invitation to apply for funding shall be received at least four weeks before the expiry of the submission deadline.
