The EuroTech Visiting Researcher Programme 2023 is now accepting applications. To foster greater collaboration among academics at its partner universities, EuroTech provides funding for research stays of one to four weeks.
Leading scientific and technology institutions in Europe have joined forces to form the EuroTech Universities Alliance in order to create a strong, sustainable, independent, and resilient Europe. The partners provide their superior research and teaching abilities, active participation in thriving eco-systems, and societal contribution. Through devoted partners and a strong presence in Brussels, they band together to expedite their research in high-tech emphasis areas and lobby for change.
Based on the EuroTech values, the partners aspire to a new level of cooperation by bringing together
their inclusive, diverse and sustainable campuses. The EuroTech Universities create a unique
environment for international talents to lead a new generation of change agents in research,
entrepreneurship, industry and society.
You can apply to this EuroTech Visiting Researcher Programme if you:
- Want to visit one of the following universities:
- Technical University of Denmark – DTU
- École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne – EPFL
- École Polytechnique – L’X

Are a professor (all levels) or postdoc (doctoral degree must have been conferred at the time
of application) at one of the above-mentioned institutions;
Want to find a simple way of financing a visit to a partner university: One week at a partner
university can be funded with up to €1,000, which can be used for e.g. travel and
accommodation. You can apply for visits of 1 to 4 weeks.
The applications will be assessed by your home university. The highest score is given to applications
aiming to establish a new collaboration within EuroTech’s Focus Areas:
- Entrepreneurship & Innovation
- Additive Manufacturing
- AI for Engineering Systems
- Health & Bioengineering
- Sustainable Society.
Also, applications containing collaboration with more than one partner university, e.g. two researchers
from different partner universities visiting a third partner university, are ranked higher. However, bilateral
collaboration is very much appreciated. Additional priority is given to sustainability-related projects that
you hope to establish or foster by means of this programme. Funding is handled at your home university.
The application process is simple: Fill out this form and send it with a support letter from your host to
your local EuroTech Operations Board member.
Note that this programme only funds the visit of the applicant, i.e. you cannot apply to obtain funding on
behalf of members of your research group. Regulations for work-related travel authorisation and
reimbursement at your home institution apply.
