European Liaison Office of the German Research Organisations

Visitor´s programme

KoWi offers a visiting programme for administrators from German universities and research organisations, who can join the Brussels’ office for a period of up to three weeks. For such visits KoWi provides a guest office in Brussels, including telephone, computer and internet access.

During their stay in Brussels visitors will have the possibility to gather information from the KoWi team about funding opportunities and developments within the EU research funding policies, for instance. Also, they can pursue their own projects and appointments, and will be able to make use of KoWi’s networks for establishing their own working contacts.

The main target group of the programme are EU liaison officers.

Preparation

The visitor should be sent to Brussels on behalf of a German university, research organisation or research administration. Before the visit candidates should explain their reasons and motivation for the stay and talk to the KoWi team about their main interests. Additionally, the candidate should submit a short CV as well as a project description, if applicable.

On the basis of this information KoWi will prepare a “visiting programme” which encompasses suggestions for current events in Brussels and which matches the visitor’s own individual working schedule and appointments.

Moreover, KoWi will help with lists of contacts and links for accommodation and will provide orientation in the city of Brussels.

A period of at least eight weeks should lie between the registration for the programme and its beginning.
