Your participation

Keep in touch, share your experiences

We are focusing on direct exchange within the Research Alumni Network and providing first-hand information to this community.  To accomplish to this we are using different tools (newsletter, social media etc.) and communication channels on the local („Stammtisch“) and supraregional levels.

„Return for Research Grants“

The goal of this measure is to involve former international researchers in activities to strengthen our global academic network, to initiate further cooperation, and to support future academics at the University of Siegen. Applicants can be professors, private lecturers or academic consultants in their role as host/hostess of the Research Alumni from any department at the University of Siegen. Funding will be prioritised towards applications which ultimately propose sustainable research collaboration between the alumnus/alumna and the host/hostess from the University of Siegen. Thus, joint publications, external fundraising and other such objectives will be viewed favourably. The first and second application periods have now expired.

Forscher-Alumni-Conference / On-site activities

Our mission is to support already existing or planned activities with Research Alumni contributions. Please feel free to request our assistance.

‚Zukunftsblick‘. The Forscher-Alumni-Academy / Encounters

We are able to offer appropriated training programmes for research alumni, scientists and young researchers by referring to services of the University of Siegen (for example Hochschuldidaktik). Through these programmes we can foster new forms of interaction and exchange.
