DIRAC EXCHANGE PROGRAM
DIRAC Trainee Exchange Program has been develloped with the aim of allowing both internal and external parties, be it undergraduates, masters students, Ph.D. students or postdoctoral researchers, to get to know or enter into closer collaboration with any of the DIRAC partner institutions.
To achieve this the DIRAC exchange training program will fund exchanges.
WHO CAN APPLYIn essence, the DIRAC is open to any interested party, but the main focus is put on:
- researchers who are members of any of the DIRAC partners
- researchers who intend to visit any of the DIRAC partner institutions
- researchers who demonstrate close connections with any of DIRAC's goals
THE VISITSAny of the nine DIRAC partners can host applicants for the DIRAC training program. Visits typically occupy between three and six months for undergraduates, masters and PhD students, and between one and three months for senior researchers.
