New Fellowship Programme ZENiT = Zukunftskolleg Exchange Network: interdisciplinary Talent

The Zukunftskolleg has launched a new fellowship format called ZENiT.

The purpose of the programme:
Researchers at an early career stage are obliged to focus on a single research question in order to become the best in their fields, gain visibility and establish a successful career. At the same time, this is a career stage in which new questions, often across disciplinary boundaries, become particularly interesting for generating the ideas of tomorrow! These projects are best pursued as groups, with the best colleagues from across the world, and need preparation – but often the structures within our universities are not ideal for creating such groups.
The Zukunftskolleg ZENiT Research Group enables researchers to create such a group, which would meet in Konstanz over the course of three years to develop research ideas, perhaps write a book together  or apply for a grant; found a new society or establish a series of specialized meetings; invent a new discipline at the interface of related ones; create a new performance or exhibition, or pursue a dream project on the sidelines of their current focus: Think big, think long-term, think creative together!
