Invitations of visiting researchers without compensation (also scholarship holders)
In order to simplify the organisational processes associated with a guest stay at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, we have developed the necessary forms in two languages in consultation with the Human Resources Department, the Student Info Service and the IT department. The proposed procedure applies to all guest researchers or doctoral students from other institutions who do not enter into an employment relationship with the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam. At the same time, it makes it easier for us to register this group of people. Please proceed internally as follows.
1. Invite a visiting scholar and conclude a contract
Issue an invitation. If the response is positive, a contract for a guest stay can be drawn up. Have the two-language version of the contract filled out and signed by the head of the inviting department (dean, head of department/institute).
2. Send the contract and Campus.Card application to the visiting researcher
Send the one-sided signed contract and the application for the Campus.Card to the visiting scholar* for completion and signature. Please also ask for a digital photo to be sent to you.
4. Assign a personnel number, forward the application for a Campus.Card & photo to the Student Info Service.
The Human Resources Department enters the visiting scholar in the SVA, assigns a staff number, enters the personnel number on the application for a Campus.Card and sends the application and photo to the Student Info Service firstname.lastname@example.org. The contract, signed by both parties, remains in the Human Resources Office.
5. Send information on the activation of the Campus.Card to the building management.
Please send an email to email@example.com with information on which rooms and functions (e.g. copying at departmental expense) the Campus.Card should be activated for the visiting scholar. As a rule, visiting scholars do not receive a library card, but they can easily apply for a user card in the library.
Erasmus+ Staff Mobility
Short-term guest lectureships at FH Potsdam can also be funded through Erasmus+. If a partnership agreement exists between your home university and University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, you can apply for Erasmus+ funding at the International Office of your university.
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) offers various funding programmes for longer-term teaching and research stays.
The Fulbright Foundation also supports longer-term stays of American academics in Germany for teaching and research purposes through various programme lines.
