HHU Research funding day 07.03.2018
- research funding for junior scientists

A successful research career depends very much on obtaining research funding through third party money. Research funding and supporting organisations are coming to HHU in order to introduce their funding programmes for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers. They will also be available to discuss your specific questions and needs applying for third party money. Use the chance to get in contact with the representatives of the different funding organisations and discuss the different funding options with them and your peers.

                                       Wednesday, 07.03.2018 09:30 a.m - 4 p.m
