Ontario/Baden-Württemberg Faculty Mobility Program

Research visits at renowned partner universities in Ontario, Canada


The Ontario Baden-Württemberg Faculty Mobility Program is part of the state-to-state programme of Baden-Württemberg and the province of Ontario, Canada, with the objective of strengthening the exchange of science and research. It is the second pillar of the partnership besides the student exchange. Joint research projects can also intensify the cooperation in the long term and build a growing network. With the help of the deeper networking of researchers and lecturers, students can also be won over for future exchange.

The research fellowships are intended for the realization of a research project of one's own choice in cooperation with an academic host at a partner university in the province of Ontario who provides the necessary research facilities at the host institute and is available as a contact person for the implementation of the research project.
