The "Future Mobility Grants" and the supplementary exchange program of the InnovationCampus Future Mobility (ICM) are designed to support international collaboration of the ICM with researchers from all over the world.

With the grant "Visiting Professors/International Experts" the partners of the ICM, University of Stuttgart and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), support experienced scientists worldwide in long-term networking with the two partner institutions.

The international experts will be involved in the research topics of the two partner institutions in Baden-Württemberg with an individual scientific advisory contract. Details of the planned tasks must be agreed with the corresponding institute and the service units before the start of the advisory contract. The "Visiting Professors/International Experts" grants are not designed to fund longer-term study trips and visits. For these stays, other funding formats are available within the framework of the "Future Mobility Grants".

The requirements for participation in the "Visiting Professors/International Experts" are given in the program information. All necessary documents and templates can be found below.
