Frequently Asked Questions
Who can apply?
All docs and postdocs from European countries can apply. No prior experience is needed and programming skills are not needed either. The language of the Research Innovation Lab is English.
What about costs, accommodation, and travel?
Once your application has been accepted your participation in the Research Innovation Lab is free of charge. Accommodation and meals will be provided for all participants but you will need to organise your travel. Travel expenses will be reimbursed.
How do I know if my doc or postdoc project ﬁts with the theme of the Research Innovation Lab?
Your current research project does not need to ﬁt with all the themes of the summer school. What is more important, is that you bring an interest in one of them that you want to discuss with peers across a range of disciplines.
Can I take ﬁve days out of my busy research schedule?
Yes, if you are looking for the bigger picture! The summer school is aimed at people who are willing to take a break from their (post)doctoral work and reﬂect on their research in light of larger developments in and beyond their ﬁeld. You are bound to return to your work with new insights, networks, and vision!
