The EURICS fellows are selected based on their research proposal’s interest and innovative dimension, as well as on the quality of their scientific background. EURICS attaches great importance to the applicants’ ability to create networks and to lead collaborations with scholars and experts from the partner institutions.

EURICS ensures the quality and impartiality of its selection process. Each application is subject to an assessment made by an International Scientific Council. Each of the selected applications is evaluated by fully independent experts. Based on these evaluations, the Scientific Council deliberates and transmits its recommendations to the Executive Committee for the final selection.
