Researchers at Risk
Universität Hamburg wants to assist researchers at risk in continuing their research career. As a founding member of the German chapter of Scholars at Risk, Universität Hamburg has a particular obligation to support researchers at risk and to promote academic freedom.
The focus here is on academic collaboration and networking, as well as taking personal responsibility to provide collegial support in the field of research for researchers suffering persecution and oppression.
The following pages provide an overview of the various funding opportunities available at Universität Hamburg, as well as information for supervising academic staff.
