Visitors Programme
CEO-UAB has a Visitor Programme which supports scholars and postgraduate students who wish to visit the centre for a limited period to study or undertake research on themes that lie within the target areas of the Centre.

CEO-UAB welcomes applications from academics to this programme to stay in the Centre to participate in existing projects, and to pursue their own research.

Researchers will work side-by-side with CEO-UAB researchers, and will have full access to scholarly resources, computing facilities and office space if needed. Visitors will have a “sponsor” within the Centre, i.e. a person who is interested in their project and who will be their main point of contact. It is expected that applicants will provide their own direct financial support (salary, travelling).

During their stay, visitors are expected to attend the outreach activities organised, and therefore, while it is understood that there will be short absences for conferences and other commitments, CEO-UAB must be their primary focus during the visit.

“CEO-UAB was the best olympic-related research centre for my research stage. Simply: a boost in my professional development”
