Call for applications

The DAAD AInet Fellowship is awarded twice a year to a group of outstanding international early career researchers in the field of artificial intelligence. Awardees will be invited to join the Postdoctoral Networking Tour in Artificial Intelligence (Postdoc-NeT-AI), a two-step networking program that offers participants the opportunity to interact face-to-face with leading researchers in Germany, with the aim of initiating collaborations, and creating new research and career opportunities. Additionally, awardees are included in the DAAD AInet Fellows & Alumni Network, offering long-term access to German AI research, and bringing together bright researchers from all around the world.

The Virtual Networking Week

The first part of the program is the Virtual Networking Week. During this week, the host scientists will present their research, as well as their research group, their home institution, and the opportunities for cooperation. They will invite participants to one-to-one meetings to deepen the exchange and to plan future collaboration. Networking within the group of scholars will be just as profitable and will provide new ideas and connections.

One-week travel stipends

The second element of Postdoc-NeT-AI comprises the funding of an individual one-week trip to Germany (extendable by one week at the participant’s own expense). Every participant can use this stay in Germany to follow up on the virtual networking week and visit institutions and individual researchers to deepen the contacts and develop a tangible basis for future cooperation.

The upcoming networking tour will focus on:

Human-centered AI

The Virtual Networking Week takes place from November 13 - 17, 2023.

The planning process is ongoing, and a considerable number of scientists/institutions has already confirmed their participation. 

They cover the whole spectrum from basic to applied research to industrial application and we are happy to announce that quite a few of Germany’s top research centers will be part of the program.

Are you interested to meet these scientists and to learn more about the German AI research landscape?
