The following documents have been updated; the Mobility for Regional Excellence programme, Guide for Applicants, Guide for Evaluators, Project description and CV. Please make sure you download the new version! The main changes/clarifications are:

- There is a 10 page restriction on the Project description.

- It is the Programme Board that is responsible for the final ranking of applications. It is the Regional Development Committee that makes the formal decision.

- The programme offers a flexibility regarding the the mobility period. The project must be finished no later than 24 months after the applicant receive the letter of approval. In practice this means that the researcher can wait 12 months to start the project or he/she can divide the project in shorter periods.

We receive many questions from potential applicants. We try to update the Q&A accordingly!
