For the next tour in November 2020, we invite excellent early career postdoctoral researchers to apply until 16 August 2020.

The Postdoctoral Networking Tour in Artificial Intelligence (Postdoc-NeT-AI), which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), has the goal to connect international postdoctoral researchers with the German AI. Twice a year, we offer fully funded tours to the hotspots in the public and the private sector where, for one week, the selected researchers have the chance to connect and discuss their work with leading researchers in the field of AI.
Apply now to this year's tour (taking place from 22 to 28 November) until 16 August 2020.
