Enlosed please find a link to a "Science Tour", offered by our partner organization, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The Science Tour will take place from December 4-10, 2011, and will provide an overview of medical research in Germany. The target group are young researchers considering a research stay in Germany, who need to establish contacts. This might be an opportunity for some of your Ph.D. students or young postdoctoral researchers to prepare for a longer research stay in Germany (possibly under the auspices of the Humboldt funding schemes).

 Interested parties need to apply directly to the DAAD (see below), who is also responsible for selecting the participants - the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation is not involved. Travel costs to Germany need to be borne by the participants, all other expenses during the stay in Germany are covered. Deadline for applications: October 9, 2011.
