GET_INvolved – become a Partner
What a partner is
Partner institutions like universities or research institutes support a defined number of talented students or young scientists per year to allow them for an internship, traineeship, or research stay at the accelerator facilities GSI and FAIR in Darmstadt, Germany.
This dedicated cooperation under the GET_INvolved umbrella programme is usually based on a bilateral or multilateral agreement between FAIR and GSI on one hand and the institute or university on the other hand which regulates the financial arrangements for scholarships.
Benefits and Opportunities for Partners
- Education: Providing opportunities for students and young researchers to gain experience and to work in research projects of one of the world-leading institutions in particle and nuclear physics enriches their education and thereby will enhance partner institution’s attractiveness for potential students and researchers.
- Network: The structured mobility opportunities of the GET_INvolved programme will support the partner institution’s international networking by profiting from the personal knowledge that the students and young researchers will gain and the contacts they will make with GSI/FAIR.
- Next Generation: Existing research collaborations with FAIR and GSI at the partner institution in FAIR shareholder countries and beyond will profit from the higher mobility of young researchers to build up the next generation of researchers that could profit from the enormous research potential the new FAIR accelerator facility will offer.
What a partner usually provides
Institutional GET_INvolved programmes usually include funding for
- Travel (return trip home institute to FAIR/GSI)
- Local costs (Accommodation, Subsistence) and
- Mandatory health and Liability insurance.
In addition, the programme provides administrative support, such as in advertising the programme, selecting the most talented candidates for the dedicated programme.
