What can be funded?

Overview on fundable measures

The goal of the Bayreuth-Melbourne Polymer/Colloid Network is to support researchers and provide them with a broader understanding and valuable experience by rendering the complementary expertise of all project partners accessible in order to open up more career opportunities.

In particular, the program supports students, doctoral researchers, and scholars in organizing visits abroad at the partner institutions involved in the network. It organizes and facilitates the participation in hosting courses, summer programmes, conferences, symposia, and workshops on joint research projects. It also supports established forms of joint research and publication and new areas of potential cooperation, such as joint international programmes of study and joint supervision of doctoral researchers.

The following charts provide an overview on fundable measures:


University staff / professors

German University staff / Professors going to AustraliaHide

For German project staff and professors as well as post-docs, all activities and stays are funded according to the “BayRKG” (Bavarian Travel Expenses Law), which requires a “Dienstreiseantrag” (business travel request) in advance and a “Reisekostenabrechnung” (travel and subsistence form) after completion of the stay. It is possible to ask for a part payment in advance.

The attendance fees for conferences are also borne by the DAAD.

Accommodation costs for up to 14 days have to be defrayed by the host institution. For stays longer than 14 days, accommodation costs will be funded by the network.

Australian University Staff / Professors coming to GermanyHide

For Australian professors and post-docs, all activities and stays are funded with fixed subsistence allowances.

*If a research stay or lectureship lasts at least 14 days at the research destination, one also gets a fixed travel
allowance.

Student Exchange (Undergraduate & Graduate Students, PhDs) - from Germany to AustraliaHide

Research Stays of German undergraduate and graduate students / PhDs will be funded with fixed allowances for travelling and if they last at least 14 days at their research destination, also with a fixed subsistence allowance. 

The attendance fees for conferences are also borne by the DAAD.

For German undergraduate and graduate students / PhDs conferences are funded - only on application in advance (!) - with allowances according to the “BayRKG” (Bavarian Travel Expenses Law), which requires a “Dienstreiseantrag” (business travel request) beforehand and a “Reisekostenabrechnung” (travel and subsistence form) after completion of the stay. It is possible to ask for a part payment in advance.

In advance of their stay all exchange students need to go through an application process which includes:

  • Agreements between applicants and two supervisors (one supervisor each at the home university and the host institution); Application form
  • The approval of the project board
  • Financial agreements
  • Visa application

Please be aware that the visa application process may last up to 3 months - depending on your nationality and the kind of visa you apply.

DAAD allowances can only be paid if there is a travel confirmation (e.g. a flight ticket). But  be aware that if your visa is not yet granted and you already book a flight, it is on your own risk. Please offset this risk by paying the additional costs for rebookable / refundable tickets.
