Research Projects

For the 2021 edition, there are 24 research projects on offer, for 20 positions.

One of the fellowships is exclusively reserved for candidates with disabilities. ONLY they can participate, and all candidates that cannot prove their disability via an official certificate will be rejected. Candidates can choose among the 5 research projects identified with the disability icon, and only the best candidate will be financed. In case no candidate meets the requirements of the programme, the position will be declared void.

A list of all research projects is given in the link at the right. Please note that you can ONLY apply to 1 research project, so choose wisely. Also, remember the code of your chosen project (2021MFP-COFUND-xx), as it will be required during the submission of your application, in the Fellowship Information section. Before applying check the desired candidate's profile included in the description of the project and the criteria for the external evaluation phase.
