Research and teaching abroad

TUM supports its scholars and scientists in establishing and maintaining international networks. Within the scope of Erasmus+ you can, for example, receive grants for teaching purposes within Europe. The international dimension of the program also enables funding options for stays in selected countries worldwide. Professors and junior fellows additionally have the opportunity to benefit from grants provided by the TUM Global Incentive Fund.
