What is the goal of the funding line?

The scientists should research and teach together with a professor from the University of Bonn for one or two semesters.

Special Regional Focus:
The University of Bonn currently has a large number of collaborations with universities and research institutes in Africa, Asia and Latin America. As shown by the SDG index, implementing the Sustainable Development Goals poses considerable challenges for many countries in these regions. Based on the 17th Sustainable Development Goal, “Partnerships for the Goals,” researchers in the above-mentioned regions are given preference for the Bonn SDG Fellowships. The goal is to support talented researchers and build and strengthen networks through them.

The funding is for a period of at least 3 and not more than 12 months.
