Mobility Support

Travel Grants for Conferences

The presentation of research findings on national or international conferences and workshops is an essential part of your academic career.

Support for international travel (if not financed by your Chair or from project funds) can be applied for through the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Please note that applications have to be made at least four month before the trip takes place.

Further information is provided by DAAD. Support can be granted within the program to support the travel to conferences (Kongressreiseprogramm) as well as the travel program for speakers and presenters (Vortragsreisen).

Please consult the DAAD database for additional programs. Applications for the DAAD funds including DAAD travel grants may be handed in at any time as long as they are submitted at least four months prior to the first day of participation.

Should no financial means be available at the Chair, doctoral candidates can apply for support from TU Berlin through the TU-DOC Office. TU Travel Grants are available to doctoral candidates if they actively participate in a conference or workshop and can demonstrate an active culture of supervision.

To a small extent PhD researchers can also receive support from the Association of Friends of the TU Berlin for their travel expenses.

Stays Abroad

As part of the European Union’s Erasmus scheme, the TU Berlin has cooperation agreements with a number of partner institutions around Europe and supports not only the exchange of students but also the mobility of academic personnel in the framework of short-term teaching visits

Please contact our International Office for further information.

Long-term stays of early-stage researchers at foreign universities and research institutions are funded by a number of institutions. Support varies regarding to the available funding, selection procedures as well as application requirements and deadlines. The duration of such stays varies, normally between three and twelve month.

Joint Doctoral Degrees (Cotutelle de thèse)

The doctoral regulations of TU Berlin allow the possibility to pursue a joint doctoral degree at two universities according to the so-called cotutelle procedure.

Based on an equal share of work at both partner institutions the candidate is granted a joint doctoral degree and is allowed to hold the respective title in each country (e.g. a Dr.rer.nat in Germany and a PhD in the United Kingdom).

Interested candidates should contact their faculty administration after consulting with their supervisor/s.

Currently there are joint doctoral programs with the following universities:

General information is provided by German Rector's Conference (HRK). Interested doctoral candidates should discuss the matter with their respeted supervisor before contacting the faculty service centre of their faculty.
