Call for Nominations - Max Planck Mobility Grants

Max Planck-India Mobility Grants are travel grants by which cooperation between young Indian scientists and a Max Planck Institute (MPI) is to be initiated.

Scientists who are awarded these grants must spend a minimum of one month per year at a Max Planck Institute. The hosting Max Planck Institute will receive €3,000 per year for four years out of MPG central funds and will use this to cover costs for return tickets from India to Germany, accommodation costs, per diem, local travel costs and consumables for the Mobility Grant Holder. The mobility grant is not paid out to the candidate as a personal fellowship but is disbursed for the candidate’s purpose through the hosting Max Planck Institute. Grant Holders should be motivated to extend invitations to their partners from MPI to their home institutes in India in order to further enhance cooperation.

The programme “Max Planck-India Mobility Grant” (MPIMG) is open to all research institutions in India. Postdocs should have obtained their doctorate no longer than four years ago (for a doctorate in medicine: no longer than six years).
