The Dresden Fellowship Programme invites international scholars to conduct joint research and teaching at the TU Dresden. For two weeks up to six months, early-career researchers can be funded as Dresden Junior Fellows and established researchers as Dresden Senior Fellows. With both program lines, TU Dresden aims to attract scientific talents. The focus of the program is on fostering cooperation and setting up long-term cooperation strategies for institutions and project groups at TU Dresden and its DRESDEN-concept partners.
