CIVICA announces scholars for extended faculty visits

CIVICA announces selected scholars for extended faculty short visits programme


The CIVICA alliance has proudly unveiled the names of 17 accomplished academics selected for its fourth call of the Faculty Short Visits programme, extending from this academic year through to May 2025. This initiative marks a significant effort to bolster interdisciplinary research and educational innovation across European social sciences universities.

Under this unique programme, faculty and postdoctoral researchers from CIVICA member institutions will engage in short-term visits at partner universities. These opportunities are designed to accelerate scholarly work, foster collaborative research projects, and build lasting academic relationships.

The selection of candidates was meticulously conducted by a committee of vice-presidents for research and senior faculty, ensuring each participant was chosen for their strong and innovative research proposals. These proposals encompass approximately 50 activities, ranging from CIVICA talks, workshops, seminar series and conferences, to student-faculty research groups and specialised lectures for early-stage researchers.

This broad array of activities guarantees that both the selected participants and the broader CIVICA community will greatly benefit from these enriched academic opportunities.

Below is a list of the selected professors and postdoctoral researchers, along with their home institutions and the institutions they will be visiting:

The graph displays the total number of participants categorised by sending and hosting institutions. It encompasses all selected applicants from both the first round (May-December 2023), the second round (December 2023-March 2024), the third round (March-June 2024) and the fourth round (March-May 2024) of the CIVICA Faculty Short Visits.

This latest cohort of 17 scholars adds to the inaugural group of 26 selected in the initial round launched last May and the second group of 18 scholars selected in December of the previous year. Concurrently, the third cohort of visiting faculty is presently immersed in enriching visits across various member institutions within the CIVICA alliance.

As we congratulate the successful applicants, we eagerly anticipate the academic enrichment and new collaborations that will stem from this programme, reinforcing CIVICA's role as a leader in academic innovation and inter-university cooperation in the social sciences.

The CIVICA Faculty Short Visits Scheme is organised in the framework of CIVICA - The European University of Social Sciences, funded by the Erasmus+ programme. CIVICA brings together ten leading European higher education institutions in the social sciences, humanities, business management and public policy, with a total of 72,000 students and 13,000 faculty members. Together, they build on an ever-stronger combination of teaching, research and innovation to mobilise and share knowledge as a public good and to facilitate civic responsibility in Europe and beyond.
