Awardees NCEBP Junior Researcher round 2014

Last February the NCEBP board invited NCEBP researchers to submit proposals for one of the four available PhD student positions. This year the board allocated two positions to projects on "methodology development" (defined as development of methods that can be used by others for research), an important NCEBP goal. The other two positions were reserved for "international partner" projects, which had to be submitted together with an international partner. One condition was that the PhD student has to spend at least one year at the institute of the international partner.

After the NCEBP board selected 10 of the 29 submitted pre-proposals, the NCEBP Scientific Committee reviewed the 10 full proposals.
