Applications are judged on the following criteria:
- CV of the candidate, and in particular research experience
- Quality of the project to be developed in the host laboratory (novelty, feasibility)
- The suitability of the host laboratory for the proposed work
- Value of the exchange for the home laboratory.
As soon as a decision is reached, normally within three to four months from submission of a complete application, applicants are informed promptly.
