The bidt promotes young academics in research areas relevant to digitalisation. This programme enables up to ten outstanding and ambitious junior scientists studying for their doctorates to build up and lead independent research groups covering innovative research subjects with high application relevance.
Heads of these bidt junior research groups are thus given the opportunity not only to advance their research topics autonomously and independently, but also to feature them in their teaching. This will pave the way for long-term academic careers.
Both the admitting universities, including their students, together with potential partners in industry and society benefit from their research expertise.
No new junior scientists are currently being admitted.
