Do you want to spend time focusing exclusively on your research? Are you and your colleagues planning a new project? Do you want to bring together scholars and practitioners?


The Center for Advanced Internet Studies (CAIS) offers three programs:

  • Scholars and professionals with practice-based expertise can apply for a fellowship to spend up to six months at the center to carry out their projects.
  • In working groups, experts from different places can come together in Bochum to collaborate on joint projects.
  • Events such as conferences, workshops or summer schools provide various opportunities for exchange

The funding program is continuous. The program committee meets three times a year to decide which applications to fund. The three programs can be combined with each other.
