International research phase

For IGSSE, the doctoral researchers’ individual progression in thier fields and the development of international networks is a major goal. Therefore, a mandatory research stay of an at least three months duration is part of the IGSSE Qualification Program.

TUM holds many international partnerships, e.g. within the EuroTech or GlobalTech frameworks. Either these or the doctoral researcher´s chair provides an excellent network to support the first steps to find a suitable international partner institution.

Recommended stage for the research stay abroad is approximately 1.5 years of doctoral research (provided positive interim evaluation). Doctoral researchers are supported with specific funds to accomplish this requirement.
