ALL DISCIPLINES: eDOCation – Young researchers ("eDOCs") Further education for companies

What is eDOCation all about?

eDOCation is the first online platform where young scientists ("eDOCs") offer continuing education for companies. I launched the initiative together with my former doctoral colleague Tobias Hornig (now a data scientist at Siemens).

Eligible are postdocs who have been awarded their doctoral / PhD degrees one to two years prior to their applications. They should be able to carry out their project within one to two years. The project needs to be linked to their own, independent research plan that is to be carried out while working at a university or non-profit research organisation.

An application can be filed in the following areas of support (for details, please visit the webpage of the Thyssen foundation):

  • History, Language & Culture
  • The interdisciplinary field “Image–Sound–Language”

Funding is basically reserved for projects that are related to the promotion areas of the Foundation and have a clear connection to the German research system. This connection can be established either at a personal level through German scientists working on the project, at an institutional level through non-German scientists being affiliated to German research institutes or through studies on topics related thematically to German research interests.

No stipends are awarded for doctoral dissertations or “Habilitationen” (post-doctoral research) or to complete such works to follow up support through other institutions. The foundation generally does not accept any applications for projects if applications are being filed with other institutions offering support at the same time. An application that is refused by another institution can be filed with the foundation along with a note explaining why it was refused.
