Many fellowship holders come from the fields of engineering, biology, geography, food technology, horticulture, but also from the fields of chemistry, horticulture and law.

We would like to explicitly point out that applications from the social and economic sciences are also very welcome.

Professor Dr. Dan Christian Vodnar from USAMV in Cluj Napoca is the direct contact person for questions on site. He was a DBU fellowship holder in the CEE fellowship programme in 2008 and is in close contact with the DBU.

In September 2009, the fellowship holders who have been sponsored so far came together in the USAMV Cluj Napoca (Klausenburg) to found a DBU Alumni Association in Romania (further information here).

The Alumni Association organizes an annual alumni meeting in Romania and supports the DBU in announcing the fellowship programme in Romania.

Here you can find some sample fellowships:

Agnes Balazsi

Andrei-Marius Mocan

Radu-Mircea Giurgiu


Further exemplary fellowships can also be found in our fellowship database.
