Exchange and collaboration are the basis for excellent research and steady research progress. In order to further promote research collaborations the Junior Scientist & International Researcher Center (JUNO) supports the exchange between researchers at HHU and their colleagues around the world who have been at HHU before.

Target group
HHU Research Alumni are German or international researchers who have been doing research at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf before and continue their research career abroad. The beneficiaries who will be supported by this programme are researchers who work at research institutes worldwide. Researchers working at other national research institutes are currently not eligible to be funded.

Additional funding possibilities for a research stay at HHU

In addition to the StayConnected@HHU Research Alumni Programme of the Junior Scientist and International Researcher Center there are several funding possibilities for your research stay at HHU.

The brochure "Funding your research in Germany" provides a comprehensive overview of grants, fellowships and awards available for international PhD students and researchers in Germany and in the European Union.

The pdf of the brochure can be downloaded from the information portal Research in Germany .
