Programme for Visiting Scientists

The international EA research programme for visiting scientists supports research projects in line with the EA’s scientific profile in the field of Technology and Innovation Assessment, which require the particular research infrastructure provided by the EA.

The programme comprises a period of residence of highly qualified colleagues at the EA for several weeks or months. The research activities the visiting scientists are involved in need to be thematically hosted by one of the EA’s existing research departments in order to facilitate sustainable cooperation in a specific field relevant to the EA.

Examples of potential activities: working in cooperative research projects; initiating and proposing new research projects, initiating and/or accomplishing high-profile international publications, initiating and/or implementing conferences, workshops, project meetings etc.
