ISSI has approved the introduction of the Johannes Geiss Fellowships (JGF). This new programme will help ISSI to fulfil its mandate. In 1994, Pro ISSI issued a Brochure defining the mandate of the soon to-be-created International Space Science Institute: "It is proposed to create an Institute in Switzerland called ISSI at which scientists from many countries can work together to achieve a deeper understanding of the results from space missions, adding value to those results through multidisciplinary research in an atmosphere of international cooperation".

JGF would offer a stipend, paying travel expenses and living expenses for a stay at ISSI of 1-6 months, possibly in several separate intervals, to coincide with time availability on university academic calendars.

This can be done in close collaboration with the Pro ISSI Association. ISSI might also consider involving its branch in China, ISSI-Beijing, in these activities. The JGF can also provide additional funding and support to scientists in sabbatical period.

Johannes Geiss Fellowship is awarded for limited duration visits (1-6 months).

How to apply?
