The Bekker Programme

The Bekker Programme

The aim of the Programme is to increase international mobility of scientists and academic teachers employed at Polish universities and scientific units by enabling them to conduct research or to teach in renowned foreign centres around the world. Trips lasting from 3 to 12 months will allow them to stay in acclaimed scientific centres, establish long-term cooperation with them and implement projects together with prominent foreign scientists. The Programme will create an opportunity for younger scientists to complete valuable post-doctoral scholarships.

The Programme provides funding of a scholarship covering both the Beneficiary’s subsistence costs related to a researcher’s stay at a foreign host institution and a mobility allowance. The amount of the scholarship may be increased if the spouse of the Beneficiary and his/her underage children are included in the trip, and in the case of the Beneficiary having a certified disability to a significant or moderate degree – a carer.

Applicants in the Programme are individual scientists and academic teachers, possessing at least a doctorate degree, employed at Polish universities or research units under a contract of employment or a civil law contract.
