The grants are aimed at emerging researchers on the threshold of their research career. The grant holder is expected to conduct the bulk of the research themselves, but at the same time the development of highly qualified personnel (HQP) should be a major component of the project. Postgraduate students should be full time students, and this grant may financial support for their degree studies.
