Humboldt Research Fellows at LMU
In 2018, LMU has welcomed many visiting professors and research fellows, funded by the Humboldt Foundation, who have come to work with colleagues in Munich. The Humboldt Foundation’s programs promote cooperation between prominent German researchers and leading scholars from abroad. Winners of the Humboldt Research Award and holders of Humboldt Research Fellowships themselves select the partners with whom they wish to collaborate.
