Visiting Researchers Programmes

LISER's Visiting Researchers Programmes

LISER recognises the importance of international research exchange and collaboration with researchers in the various fields of socio-economic research. Therefore, the institute provides the opportunity for researchers (in-house and from other institutions) to collaborate in joint research projects.

The Visiting Scholars Programme provides its researchers with the opportunity to interact with top international researchers and gain in experience, develop capacity and increase research networks. Visiting scholars are available for discussion with staff members to advise on research projects, to participate actively in research seminars and to contribute with teaching in the context of LISER's training programme.

In addition, LISER welcomes visits from doctoral candidates within the framework of a co-supervision throughout the duration of a PhD training, or for a short period to benefit from the research environment at the Institute.

LISER is also part of the European funded InGRID Programme, which provides trans-national access to different research infrastructures with data and expertise in the fields of poverty and living conditions. For more information on how to apply to upcoming calls, please visit the visiting grants section of the InGRID-2 website.
