CC makes a substantive assessment of applications by awarding points for the following:

  • motivation to participate in the Project;
  • a developed programme on how to improve the candidate’s own competences;
  • developed practical use of the competences.

In case of academic staff, additional points will be awarded to the persons involved in the education of Ph.D. candidates.

In the recruitment process there are two ranking lists according to the gender. The weak applications, which do not receive at least 60% of the possible number of points, will be rejected regardless of the availability of places in the project.

All applications that receive the minimum number of the required points will be subject to voting by the CC before the final approval. The decisions are taken according to an ordinary majority of votes in the presence of at least half of the CC members. With an equal number of votes, the Chairman’s vote is the decisive one. The CC meets at least once a month throughout the duration of the Project.
