Science and research today are more international than ever before. That is why TUM supports early international and intercultural collaboration in research, and the creation of personal and institutional networks.
International research stays and activities are an essential part of doctoral qualification. Such activities enable doctoral candidates to gain valuable personal experience as well as useful career objectives.
Therefore, TUM supports international research activities of its doctoral candidates. However, a thorough consultation between the supervisor and the doctoral candidate in the run-up to the stay abroad is required, so that the added value in terms of content, personal training and financial support are brought into a meaningful relationship.
More about the internationalization can be found on the website of TUM GS(link is external).
