Applicants are now welcome to apply for the Visiting Fellow Programme at Lucerne, Switzerland 2020. As part of our commitment to furthering academic collaboration and exchange, also the institute sponsors a Visiting Fellow Programme for young researchers. The aim of the scheme is to enable promising doctoral candidates and early-career scholars to spend a period of time in Lucerne, during which they can share and develop research and teaching ideas with our members.
