Coronavirus-Pandemie

The Humboldt Foundation is responding with flexibility to the Covid-19 pandemic and stands ready to help its network when questions arise. On this page, we have bundled information on dealing with the novel coronavirus. We are also taking the opportunity to ask experts from our network: How are you helping to deal with the coronavirus? How important are collaborative international research projects in this connection? And what might the future look like after Covid-19?

Best possible support during the crisis

The Humboldt Foundation wants to support its network flexibly and in the best possible ways during the coronavirus pandemic. We are continuously at work to respond to this dynamic situation and comply with government requirements. We have cancelled or postponed events. Where possible, we are working to develop digital formats for events. Our funding operations continue with minor restrictions. It goes without saying that fellowships and associated benefits will be paid without interruption. When delays arise due to the coronavirus crisis, we work to provide flexible support.

We have bundled important information for individuals we currently sponsor and future Humboldt Fellows in FAQs on this subject.

 

Applications and nominations still being accepted

Funding applications continue to be accepted and will be processed and reviewed as usual. Unfortunately, the Humboldt Foundation cannot accept any new applications for several alumni support measures for the time being.

 

#ResearchAcrossBorders – The Humboldt network is working on solutions

Dealing with the corona crisis is - worldwide - currently one of the most important tasks these days. The Humboldt network with its experts from a wide range of disciplines and countries is also working at full speed on this. At the same time, we are already addressing the question of what experiences, changes and even lessons will come out of this crisis. In this connection, as part of its campaign #ResearchAcrossBorders, the Humboldt Foundation is asking researchers from its network the following questions: How are you helping through your work to deal with the coronavirus? How important are collaborative international research projects in this connection? And how might the future look after Covid-19? These experts report in video portraits.

In addition, the Humboldt Foundation is gathering video statements at #ResearchAcrossBorders which make the case for international research collaboration, scientific exchange, trust and open-mindedness. We are convinced that global problems can be solved only when we work together. In this crisis and in the future.
