The current students


12 students have been recruited in the first year of the project (2015) as Early Stage Researchers (ESRs)

They will be hosted in one partner institution for a duration of up to 36 months, and will have the opportunity to do secondments in other partner institutions throughout their 3-year recruitment period.
