  • Travels to international conferences outside of Germany if a oral presentation will be given or a poster will be issued
  • Research stays at international partner institutions (up to 3 month)
  • Stays at foreign universities for the purpose of teaching, especially in developing countries

The journeys are intended to help the doctoral students to gain international experience in the field of science, to present their research internationally or to establish an international network.
