INSPIRE and Seed Grants

The cfaed INSPIRE Grants aim at supporting a lively scientific exchange by facilitating research stays in collaborating institutions abroad.
This program is designed for our cfaed PhDs, Postdocs, RGLs and matching funds who may benefit from their research stay both by gaining and/or fostering international research experience but also by getting inspirations for new research approaches and topics. Furthermore, not only the awardee but also the cfaed as a cluster itself can benefit by enhancing our visibility throughout the international science community.

We have two calls per year. All applications will be evaluated by our Hiring Committee, who will assign grants based on quality, duration and place of stay.

All information, program details and forms can be requested by sending an email to

Get inspired!!
