Creating the FutureMembers of the HFA
At the heart of the Hector Fellow Academy are the 26 Hector Fellows who have been admitted to the Academy by receiving the Hector Science Award. Together with the following Academy members, they contribute significantly to the success of the HFA.
The Hector Research Career Development Awardees are a group of scientists working in the HFA disciplines, who are — as recipients of the award — actively supported on their way towards a professorship. Their perspectives expand the scientific exchange within the HFA.
The young scientists are supervised by either a Hector Fellow or a Hector Research Career Development Awardee within the framework of a doctoral project or an interdisciplinary project. They receive financial and non-material support from the Hector Fellow Academy and are enabled to develop in a variety of ways thanks to an individualized support program.
Associated Fellows receive material funding for their research projects. They are also allowed to participate in selected events and the continuing education program.
Alumni are former members of the Hector Fellow Academy who have completed their project but remain affiliated with the Academy.
