.research alumni programme
The Research Alumni Programme was designed to serve international guest researchers and researchers of the University of Siegen as a platform for research and networking. Collaboration, Exchange, Network: We are continuing to extend the network with our research alumni so that we can provide special offers for them and to actively integrate them and their contributions into the scientific and alumni network of the University of Siegen. The Research Alumni Programme is a cooperation between the Welcome Center, the International Office of the University Siegen and the Alumniverbund, the Alumni Network of the University Siegen.

How has international research been affected by the current global pandemic? Insights from our research alumni network
Throughout 2020, the way in which we live and work has changed significantly due to COVID19. To see how international research partnerships were affected during this turbulent time, we reached out to members of our research alumni network and asked them about how their research has been affected. We received interesting insights from researchers based in many different countries, including China, Ghana, Mauritius, Brazil and the USA. The respondents also specialised in a wide range of different subjects, such as Engineering, Media Science, Physics, Social Work and Chemistry. read more
AfricaSign: Overcoming barriers to participation in education using technology
One of the strongest benefits to research collaborations is that they allow researchers from different fields to come together to use their complementary areas of expertise to develop a new project. This was the case for Prof. Kristof Van Laerhoven, who is a professor of ubiquitous computing at the department for electrical engineering and computer science in the University of Siegen, and Prof. Abdelhadi Soudi, a professor of natural language processing at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Rabat in Morocco. read more

Thus, joint publications, external fundraising and other such objectives will be viewed favourably. The first application period has expired. The second application period is currently open to someone who is planning to visit from the 1st of April 2018 until the 31st of December 2018.
