Newsletter 1/2015

Dear Readers,

Most Humboldtians know what it means to be a guest researcher in Germany. Promoting research stays in Germany for scientists and scholars from throughout the world is, after all, the Humboldt Foundation’s core business.

At the same time we also make it possible to change one’s perspective by taking on a new role: Humboldtians the world over can themselves become a host to researchers from Germany. Our Feodor Lynen Programme hopefully enriches both sides. We have expanded our online search capability to make it easier for potential Feodor Lynen guest researchers and hosts to find a good match. In this Newsletter you can read about just how well this search tool works – and much more.

We wish you an enjoyable read!
