Visiting Professors @ISIT program 2021-22


What is Visiting Professors @ISIT?

The aim of the ‘Visiting Professors @ISIT’ program is to welcome two visiting faculty members to the school each year, specializing in ISIT’s fields of research and expertise. Ideally, the two visitors should come from two different continents and two different disciplinary spheres, in keeping with ISIT’s outward-looking and multidisciplinary ethos.

The program in brief

  • Two visiting professors per year
  • One week to two months spent working at ISIT
  • Applicants must be published university lecturers and researchers from a partner university outside of France, working in one of ISIT’s disciplinary fields
  • Teaching and research cooperation may take place in person or online

Aspects to be covered in your application and during your visit

  • Research (workshop with ISIT’s lecturers and researchers on a research issue)
  • Teaching (lectures, seminars, etc.)
  • Impact on society or students (supervision of an Applied Research Project).
  • Links, if possible, with the school’s theme of the year. (the theme for 2021-22 is ‘Well-being, Health and Sport’ – UN Sustainable Development Goal No 3). 

Administrative aspects

For in-person visits, your travel and accommodation costs will be paid by ISIT, up to a maximum of €3,000, upon submission of your receipts.

Applications for virtual visits are also welcome.
