Add-on Fellowships for Interdisciplinary Economics and Interdisciplinary Business Administration
The Joachim Herz Foundation annually awards 40 “Add-on Fellowships for Interdisciplinary Economics”. The fellowships aim to support PhD-students and postdocs who work on interdisciplinary economic questions.
The fellowship program addresses researchers who intend to deepen their skills in fields related to economics and whose research could benefit from such skills. Researchers from fields other than economics can also be supported if they work on issues with economic relevance. In any case, an affiliation with a public German research institution is required as the fellowships do not provide basic funding.
Fellows are supported with an amount of up to € 12.500 over the course of two years. The funds can be spent flexibly, e.g. attending interdisciplinary training sessions or workshops, attending conferences or financing research visits. Equipment, e.g. PCs, software or data, can also be purchased. The program will be tendered at least until 2024.

About our Add-On Fellows
With the Add-on Fellowships for Interdisciplinary Economics and Interdisciplinary Business Administration we support the interdisciplinary work of young scientists. Here you can see what our current and former fellows are working on and what they say about the Add-On Fellowship.
“The Add-on Fellowship has enabled me to gain independence as a research and build a research agenda of my own. The publications and skills that came out of the research activities that were supported by this Fellowship were an important basis when applying for the Assistant Professorship position at TUM.”
Prof. Dr. Janina Steinert, TU München
"The flexibility of the fellowship allowed me to get a better insight into related disciplines and to combine aspects of different worlds (e.g., law). Based on these experiences enabled by the fellowship, I plan to continue working on interdisciplinary questions.”
Daniel Blaseg, Juniorprofessor, ESADE Business School, Barcelona
“The Add-on Fellowship had a huge impact on my collaborations, network, career and perspectives. The network I built here is extremely supportive and will enable me to further improve my research.”
Astrid Harnack-Eber, Research Associate at National Student Clearinghouse
