New opportunities with European partnership, ECAS

The European Centre for Advanced Studies (ECAS) is an independent research institution set up to foster cooperation in research and teaching between the University of Glasgow and Leuphana University of Luneburg, Lower Saxony. The University of Glasgow is working Leuphana University Lüneburg to offer two new ECAS opportunities:

  • Lower Saxony – Scotland Joint Forum,
  • Lower Saxony-Scotland Tandem Fellowship Programme.

Lower Saxony – Scotland Joint Forum

ECAS in cooperation with Leuphana University Lüneburg and the University of Glasgow, invites you to the Lower Saxony – Scotland Joint Forum.

The two day event will take place online on 22 and 23 November 2021 and aims to strengthen the relationship between academics, staff and students from higher education institutions in Lower Saxony and Scotland. 

This is a chance for academics, staff and students to host their own workshops presenting research as well collaboration ideas on ongoing, as well as future, joint projects. There will be time to  network, engage in discussions and find new partners.

The call for workshop proposals closes on 31 August 2021.

The Lower Saxony-Scotland Tandem Fellowship Programme for post-doctoral researchers

ECAS is pleased to launch the Lower Saxony - Scotland Tandem Fellowship Programme, an excellent opportunity to conduct research in a cross-national exchange at the most recognized higher education institutions in Lower Saxony and Scotland.

Researchers who have completed their PhD within the last 10 years and have an employment contract with a Scottish or Lower Saxonian higher education institution are invited to apply for the programme.

The tandem concept foresees that two researchers from both regions work on a joint project. Short-term stays up to six months in the partnership region are funded with 1,200 Euro per person per month.

Applications must be submitted by 31 August 2021.
