Fellowships

The IDEA League Fellowship Programme is a unique opportunity to foster collaboration and build networks across five of Europe’s leading technical universities. The initiative enables researchers to transcend institutional boundaries and cultivate innovative inter-university research themes that address pressing European and global challenges.

Fellowship objectives

In alignment with the IDEA League’s mission to connect, collaborate, contribute, and inspire technological innovation, this fellowship programme aims to:

  • Strengthen cross-border collaboration through starting or further developing inter-university research themes.

To make this possible, funding is provided to cover your travel expenses, accommodation costs, and fees for use of the host institutions’ research infrastructure.
