ISSP UL project competition for students and young scientists

Since 2015 every year a competition of projects among Master and PhD students as well as Young scientists takes place.

Every applicant submits a research proposal, which is evaluated by experts.

Successful proposals receive funding for one year of research activities, after which the results are reported.

Up to now almost 50 projects have been realized with the total amount of funding more than 360 kEUR.
