In addition, the Fellowship system provides an infrastructure that allows for further professionalising the Research Institute in the future. This is not only important for the purpose of quality control (also in light of peer review evaluations), but also to create a basis for the implementation of new activities (e.g., award system) and new quality measures (e.g., relating fellowship to PhD supervision).
It provides a set of rules that defines researchers’ participation in the Research Institute, consistent with top research institutes in the discipline.
There are four different categories in the ABRI Fellowship System:
- Associate Fellow
- Candidate Fellow
- Visiting Fellow
