Leibniz Association - Leibniz Institute for Regional Development and Structural Planning (IRS) - IRS Fellowship Programme
Since 2013 the Leibniz Institute for Research on Society and Space (IRS) has supported international guest researchers with an institutional scholarship programme in order to finance their stay at the institute. Even in the age of digitalization, excellent research requires personal contact and joint working periods; the IRS Fellowship Programme shall enable this intensive academic collaboration. Research at the IRS is focused on the spatial aspects and contexts of social action. In doing so, spatial phenomena are explored in terms of both processual and historical dimensions using social-scientific methods. The research focuses on the preconditions, interactions, and consequences of spatial development, and how involved actors contribute to these developments by sharing insights and cooperating on processes of innovation.
European University Institute (EUI) - Fernand Braudel Senior Fellowships

Fellows are encouraged to make contact with researchers sharing their academic interests, may be involved in the teaching and thesis supervision tasks of EUI professors, and associated with one of the research projects being carried out at the EUI.
