After a successful pilot programme in 2022, ECSB is pleased to offer its Virtual Visiting Scholar Programme 2023.

The programme aims to support early career researchers to develop their research agenda by collaborating online with faculty, researchers, and networks at a selected host institution. With this virtual programme for its members, ECSB builds on its extensive global network to make visiting scholarships more accessible for early career researchers to contribute to academic career development, fostering individual and institutional ties and strengthening international collaborative research.

For detailed information on the programme including host and visitor requirements, please see

For the Virtual Visiting Scholar Programme 2023 we are pleased to offer scholarships at the following host institutions:

  • Aarhus University     
  • Grenoble Ecole de Management

We now invite interested members to apply for a virtual visiting position at one of the host institutions on offer. See details on the positions on offer here.
