CfAR expert support

CfAR will support postdoctoral researchers working in/affiliated with the Uniarts Helsinki academies by offering the possibility to finance a visit from an external expert at their seminar presentations or other research events during 2018.

For one expert support visit, the allocation is €350 as a one-time fee (plus social costs), as well as coverage of moderate travel costs. The researcher is free to choose the person he/she wants to invite and to discuss with the invited expert the organization of the session, etc. to which the visit is linked. This level of support primarily allows for inviting local experts. However, if your unit is ready to cover additional costs incurred by the expert visit, you can use CfAR’s support to partially finance an expert visit from abroad.

We hope that those of you who are in charge of organizing seminars and other research-related events will inform your researchers about this opportunity! Researchers can apply through a free application that includes a description of the event, timetable, budget, name and information about the potential visitor, as well as basic information about who is in charge of the event.
