Fellowship applications are open to all international scholars at the professor level, including outstanding assistant and associate professors, who:

(a) are active researchers in one of the following fields: information systems, business administration, and economics;

(b) work at a university or research institution, *outside* of Germany; and

(c) have *no* recent collaboration history with current members of TU Dresden’s Faculty of Business and Economics (e.g., no joint research projects and/or publications within the last five years).


The first cohort of Distinguished Research Fellows will be awarded in spring 2021. Each Fellow will be provided with funds of up to 10,000 euros for the realization of a proposed research project (including travel, lodging, and other possible expenses associated with her/his stay at TU Dresden).
