How to apply and evaluation of your application


"It was a great opportunity for me and I am really looking back at this time with great pleasure. Working for two months in another environment makes you think out of the box and was very inspiring for me. I worked closely together with the Research & Knowledge Exchange Services (RKES) and the University Library. We shared experiences on topics like the role of universities in capacity development in less developed countries and on data management policy. I am still in touch with some of the staff from this university.”
