The Postdoctoral Networking Tour in Artificial Intelligence (Postdoc-NeT-AI) is a DAAD initiative funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Our goal is to offer scientific talents from all over the world a personalized gateway to the German AI research community.
The one-week Networking Tours through Germany, which take place twice a year, are at the heart of the initiative. During these trips, a group of selected researchers gets the chance to visit and connect with leading research groups all over Germany.
Beyond this, with the AInet Community we strengthen the connection between German researchers, our alumni, and interested foreign researchers by organizing events and sharing information about funding and job opportunities. So join the community now and apply for one of our networking tours, sign up for our newsletter and join the AInet Open Days!
The DAAD removed a lot of the initial barrier to connect and the different formats (1-on-1s, discussions, posters) were a good way to connect not only with the German scientists but also with other fellows. Personally, connecting with the AI+neuroscience community in Tübingen was extremely useful and I could see a future for me there.
