International mobility for scientists and staff
The TUM School of Life Sciences has identified internationalization as an important part of its overall strategy. Not only students should take advantage of the numerous mobility opportunities, but also employees and scientists are encouraged to increasingly establish and maintain international contacts.
In addition, this page offers information on funding opportunities, how guest scientists can be invited, or how administrative staff can also organize a stay abroad on business. An overview of existing TUM partnerships shows you attractive partners with whom you can start new projects particularly easily. On the linked pages of the Global & Alumni Office you will find further information and contact persons for individual programs.
TUM supports scientific exchange, among other things, through visiting professor programs. Find out how you too can invite a colleague to TUM for an extended period: https://www.international.tum.de/en/comingtotum/research-and-teaching-stays/
Are you looking for ways to finance your international activities? Or you want to make new connections with colleagues abroad? There are many funding opportunities to apply for. We send the latest "international funding opportunities" by mail at irregular intervals. You can find the funding opportunities in our protected area (TUM ID required to log in).

Stay abroad for employees
Employees in administration can also benefit from our international partners and gain important insights into the organizational structures at other universities during a stay abroad.
In order to further intensify the exchange in this area, TUM has established the Graf-Montgelas Program to facilitate access to stays abroad for administrative staff: https://www.international.tum.de/auslandsaufenthalte/weiterbildung/montgelas/
