About the research fellowship programme
Through the research fellowship programme, the PThU invites international researchers to stay at the PThU for a month as guest researcher. During their stay it is the intention that they contribute to the development of the research and the research foci of the PThU: Mediating Good Life and Moving Identities. The PThU also wants to use the programme to give an impulse to the further internationalisation of its research, by setting up or further shaping collaboration with international partners and by stimulating international co-publications.
Although the programme is primarily focused on research, research fellows also give guest lectures in order to contribute to the international and intercultural dimension of education at the PThU. Although the university strongly encourages study abroad, it strives for internationalisation for all, including those who stay at home.
