Virtual Faculty

CITEC is conceived as an open platform for researchers around the globe working in the area of cognitive interaction technology. An important component of this platform is the “virtual faculty,” whose internationally renowned experts hail from all disciplines represented at CITEC. These researchers collaborate on academic matters, choose research projects, and provide support to students and junior researchers. Funds are available to support academic exchange with virtual faculty members, including visits and other academic activities. Applications for funding are submitted to the Scientific Board.
