Visiting Fellowships & Student Internships – Department for E-Governance and Administration

The Visiting Fellowships of the Department for E-governance and Administration aim to promote inter- and transdisciplinary cooperation on the effects, questions and challenges of digital and societal change on strategy, organization and processes.

The target group of Visiting Fellowships includes Master and PhD students, postdocs, assistant / junior / associate / full professors, together with experts from the public and private sector for short or longer stays. The Visiting Fellows work together with the researchers of the department on issues that arise in the course of the Visiting Fellows’ individual project plans – depending on their expertise, length of stay, etc. – and which are of particular interest to the Visiting Fellows

Student internships provide undergraduate, graduate (Bachelors and Masters) as well as PhD students opportunities to participate in real-world sustainable development research on a range of projects alongside the Department for E-Governance and Administration faculty and researchers. These positions allow undergraduates to collaborate on substantive matters of inquiry, gain meaningful insight into fields of study and the research process as a whole on a range of topics.

Projects vary throughout the year, but generally focus on topics including e-government, e-governance, digital participation and cooperation models, digital and social change on strategy, organization and processes, socio-technical and legal governance structures, and cyber security and security management.
