As one of three universities in Germany, the Zukunftskolleg of the University of Konstanz has successfully solicited co-financing from the EU programme "Marie Curie Actions COFUND" in the amount of 6.24 million euros. The thus created "Zukunftskolleg Incoming Fellowship Programme" (ZIF-Marie-Curie Programme) extends the existing fellowship programme of the Zukunftskolleg with a further international component.
With the ZIF-Marie-Curie Programme, the infrastructures of the Zukunftskolleg will be opened further to a global audience in accordance with the internationalisation activities of the University. At the same time, its guidelines that promote the mobility of young scientists and researchers, also offer the possibility to bring back outstanding German researchers from abroad. Over the course of five years, two-year (postdoctoral fellowships) and five-year fellowships (research fellowships) will be awarded to international scientists.
“With this programme we have a new offer to attract the best young researchers from abroad to the University of Konstanz. We can thus increase the global visibility of the University, strengthen the international research profile further and establish the Zukunftskolleg as a leading centre of training of top young researchers in Europe,” says Prof. Dr. Giovanni Galizia, director of the Zukunftskolleg. Together with the Research Support of the University, established by the Excellence Initiative by the German federal and state governments, Galizia set the COFUND proposal into motion.
Part of the application requirements for the ZIF-Marie-Curie Programme is that participants may not have spent more than twelve months in Germany the past three years. "This means that scientists, for example, can apply who are already at the University of Konstanz. They benefit from the scientific community of the Zukunftskolleg and receive an additional 3,000 euros per year for research. So at the same time, we can promote the integration of the Zukunftskolleg into the university structures,” explains Dr. Stefanie Preuss from Research Support at the University of Konstanz, who developed the programme together with the Zukunftskolleg and wrote the proposal.
The ZIF-Marie-Curie Programme will be aimed at young scientists and researchers from all disciplines who combine a high degree of teamwork and leadership qualities and have the potential to significantly advance their research field. Prerequisite for applying is a doctoral degree, excellence in research and the ability to independently carry out a research project.Candidates for the five-year fellowships must also have either raised their own or third-party funding or verify the funding of their own position through the University. The ZIF-Marie-Curie Fellows are fully integrated into the Zukunftskolleg as well as in their respective departments within the University. A tender for the Fellowships will be made soon.
The Zukunftskolleg is a building block of the institutional strategy of the University of Konstanz within the framework of the Excellence Initiative by the German federal and state governments. It is a research institution of the University of Konstanz for the promotion of young researchers. It maintains the dialogue across all subjects and generations through which the Fellows and Senior Fellows of the Zukunftskollleg are faced with ways of thinking, research approaches and methods from other disciplines.Further programme details:

„Mehr sehen, als das Auge erlaubt“, das ist ein Anspruch, dem die Hyperspektrale Bildgebung (HSI) gerecht wird. Die neue Kameratechnologie ermöglicht, Licht nicht nur ortsaufgelöst, sondern simultan auch spektral aufgelöst aufzuzeichnen. Das bedeutet, dass zur Informationsgewinnung nicht nur herkömmlich drei spektrale Bänder (RGB), sondern bis zu eintausend genutzt werden.
Das Fraunhofer IWS Dresden entwickelt eine integrierte HSI-Lösung, die das Potenzial der HSI-Technologie in zuverlässige Hard- und Software überführt und für...
An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.
Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
