Alumni Chair

Since 2008, the Alumni Chair is a grant program of the Alumni Association that replaced the Publishing Support Program that started in 2001. The Alumni Chair award focuses on targeted support for young teachers who work at the IES FSV UK. The intention is to encourage new researchers who are also dedicated to teaching in their work and thus help in further development of the IES FSV UK..
