The visiting scholar program at MTI aims at creating a dynamic and international atmosphere for our researchers and students at all three educational institutions that make up MTI.
There are three different classes of visiting scholars:
What we can offer visiting scholars depends on the context the person would come in. Funding is challenging in Finland like all over the world, but the government is rewarding us for specific internationalization processes, and we can thus negotiate packages that might include accommodation, per diem, lecture fees, and in some instances travel assistance – but each of these are on a case-to-case basis. There are also certain EU funded projects that we are involved with, and some of them have resources reserved for expertise help.
New ideas are generated best in long-term collaborative relationships and MTI very much encourages researchers to create and further the regular exchange of ideas. With those international partners who are interested in long-term cooperation, we want to maintain cooperation in research and teaching both before and after visits.
