Visiting Scientist Programmes
The Visiting Professor programme supports collaborative research visits to the research groups of the School of Science of duration of one (minimum) to twelve months. In this programme the Visiting Professor is co-funded by School of Science Dean's visitors' programme (60%) and the School of Science hosting department (40%) giving support and covering for the Visiting Professor’s allowance for travel and accommodation expenses, as well as flat-rate compensation of 2500 €/month (taxable income) or salary (taxable income). A Visiting Professor’s position in the home institution must be at the professorial level. The call is continuous. Decisions are announced four times a year.
