Three UM researchers receive YERUN grant to perform research abroad
Three UM researchers have been awarded a Research Mobility Award (RMA), provided by YERUN, the Young European Research Universities network
It is the second time this grant is presented and the aim is to stimulate research collaborations within the YERUN network, that Maastricht University is a member of. YERUN consists of 18 universities at the moment. The Research Mobility programme provides support for researchers to undertake up to two weeks of research at another YERUN partner institution from a different country. YERUN is, next to the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) one of the UM’s two strategic networks.
From a total of 88 researchers, 36 candidates were selected based on the quality of their research proposal and concrete ideas for future collaborations and publications. The list of successful applicants is published on the YERUN website.
The selected UM researchers are:
- Dr. Julia Kensbock is an Assistant Professor at UM’s School of Business and Economics, Department of Organization and Strategy. Julia’s research is located at the interface between psychology, management, and entrepreneurship and she will visit the University of Konstanz in Germany
