After the call is closed, the Management Team will revise all the applications received. An eligibility check will be first completed, including mobility and ESR rules and the proof of english level. A second check will be carried out to confirm that all the neccessary documents have been submitted. Only succesful applications will pass to the second stage.
A Scientific Selection Committee with the presence of external evaluators will be in charge of evaluating the applications of the different candidates along with representatives of the coordinator and recruiting organisations. The only criteria for evaluation is based on the scientific merit and excellence of the candidate.
Evaluation criteria, scoring and thresholds:
|CRITERIA||SCORING (over 100)||THRESHOLD||PRIORITY (ex-aequo)|
|Research & working experience**||20||10||2|
After the evaluation is finished, best candidates will be called for interview. Non-selected applicants will receive an Evaluation Summary Report with relevant information (final score, funding decision, summary of strengths and weaknesses as identified by the members of the Committee based on the comments from the evaluators).
The remote (videoconference) interview in English will last 20’ in order to get some additional information and insights on the academic record of the candidates, their motivations and suitability to the programme, and the impact that the programme may have on their future career prospects. The interview will also be used to validate the accreditation of English level.
TOTAL score (over 100) = 40 -- Threshold: 25

A consensus Evaluation Summary Report (ESR) will be sent to all the applicants participating in the evaluation with the relevant information (final score, funding decision, summary of strengths and weaknesses as identified by the members of the Committee based on the comments from the evaluators).
