Funding for workshops, conferences and cooperation in research within Circle U. Apply by 30 November 2022

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin enables students and early career researchers (PhD students and postdocs) to organize workshops, conferences and other formats of international cooperation in research in the period of January to November 2023.

Calling students and early career researchers

The call is open for all disciplines and all partner universities. For the application to be considered, the project must be compatible with one of the three core topics of Circle U.: democracy, global health or climate.

The project has to include academic support from at least one of the partner universities and from a professor at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Applications must clearly state how the chosen partners contribute to the project as well as the alliance.

Because of the dynamic situation during the pandemic situation and in case travel restrictions apply, the event can be organized digitally or in hybrid form. For an in situ organization the event has to take place in Berlin.

Mobility support

HU will finance mobility costs (travel and accomodation according to the German Travel Expenses Act), catering and speaker fees to a maximum of 5.000 Euros. Please note that the regulations of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin regarding travel, accomodation and catering apply.

The Circle U. team can lend administrative support (mainly regarding invoices and costs for traveling), but it is expected of applicants to organize the event independently.

Apply by 30 November

Please submit a short abstract of the project (one page max.) with a detailed budget to Dr. Klaus Wiehl ( by 30 November 2022.

Applications will be evaluated by a Circle U. selection committee.
