To promote international cooperation and exchange, all IGSSE doctoral researchers have to spend at least three months at a foreign partner university or scientific institution. Sufficient grants for travel and living allowance come with all IGSSE memberships.
Please note that only stays of at least four weeks can be credited against the mandatory three months.
Funds for short-term exchanges and international meetings are also available within doctoral researchers funding.
There are more than 140 TUM partnerships with foreign universities, including cooperation agreements especially tailored to IGSSE. This network provides an excellent framework for international doctoral candidates´exchange.
