Creat­ing the Future
Young Researchers

Young Researchers

The young researchers 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.
