Baden-Württemberg Stiftung

Baden-Württemberg Stiftung

The Eliteprogramm für Postdoktorandinnen und Postdoktoranden addresses outstanding young researchers. With this programme the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung supports annually around 20 postdoctoral candidates financially, who aim to pursue their research at a university within the federal state of Baden-Württemberg and who have made it their home base. A number of Zukunftskolleg Fellows have already received the institution's support.

Further, the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung aims to strengthen the network among the scientists and therefore holds meetings for the participants of the Elite Programme twice a year. Since 2009 the so called Netzwerktreffen take place in cooperation with the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. In order to strengthen the cooperation with the Zukunftskolleg our Fellows are welcome to join the Netzwerktreffen, even if they are not a part of the Elite Programme. In spring 2012 the Zukunftskolleg was happy to be host of one of those meetings.
