Humboldt Foundation

Humboldt Fellows at LMU

Munich, 12/05/2012

The year 2012 has seen a steady stream of Humboldt Fellows arrive at LMU Munich to work on research projects in collaboration with LMU faculty members. The Fellowship Program sponsored by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation enables highly qualified postdoctoral scholars and scientists from abroad to carry out research projects in Germany. Successful applicants work together with an established investigator of their own choice. Thus the number of Humboldt-sponsored scholars hosted by a university is a useful indicator of its international reputation and the size of its network of contacts.
