The FFU has research, teaching, and study exchanges with universities and think tanks across Europe, North America, Asia, and Latin America. Many international senior scholars, post-doctoral students, and graduate students spend anywhere from several weeks to a semester or full year conducting research at the FFU. The FFU has been host to a large number of Fulbright, DAAD, and Alexander von Humboldt fellowship recipients. Visiting foreign scholars and graduate students are welcome to participate in FFU research seminars, brown-bag lunches, and special events. Generally, visiting researchers also present their research to the FFU community.
