Guests at the Faculty : Humboldt Research Award and Humboldt Research Fellowship

The institutes of the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodetic Science regularly host researchers at various stages of their career who receive a sponsorship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. The sponsorship gives them the opportunity to conduct a research project of their choice in cooperation with specialist colleagues at the Faculty. 

In recent years, we have welcomed two Humboldt Research Award winners and several researchers with a Humboldt Research Fellowship for postdoctoral or experienced researchers from the following universities:

  • Politecnico di Milano
  • Singapore University of Technology and Design
  • Adolfo Ibañez University
  • Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
  • University of Wollongong
  • Chongqing University
  • Northwestern Polytechnical University
  • Beijing Institute of Technology
  • Indian Institute of Technology Madras
  • Indian Institute of Technology Delhi


If you are interested in a stay as a guest researcher at an institute of the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodetic Science, we will be happy to support you with the application process. Below you will find information and contact details of the institutes and professors.
The "Welcome Centre" of Leibniz University Hannover is the contact for international guests (postdocs, professors) with non-academic questions (e.g. visa, housing) concerning a stay in Hannover.
