Selection procedure

 

An impartial and transparent selection process is guaranteed by evaluating all applications according to a pre-defined evaluation grid. This evaluation grid focuses on Evidence of Academic Achievements, Transcripts of Records, Language proficiency, CV, Motivation Letter and (in case of PhD and PostDoc mobility) a Research Proposal describing in detail the topics that the candidate wants to work on at the host university. The application rules are the same at all partner institutions. The selection criteria are available to all applicants as part of the Application Information Package.

 

The sending university uploads all applications and a ranked list of candidates to the online-intranet-platform accessible to all project partners. After interviews carried out with all applicants by representatives of the co-ordinating university and the EU partners, the project co-ordinator matches the applicants with the host universities.
