Investing in research excellence and
the entrepreneurs of tomorrow


  1. Applicants must be in the first 4 years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers and not yet have been awarded a doctorate. This 4 year period is measured from the date of obtaining the degree which would formally entitle them to embark on a doctorate.
  2. Applicants must be eligible to enrol for a PhD in their chosen host country (so for most of Europe that means they must have a Masters, but it varies from country to country)
  3. At the time of recruitment applicants must not have lived or worked in their chosen host country for more than 12 months in the previous 3 years.
