Contact the host – Expression of Interest Portal

We strongly recommend using this portal, as the MULTIPLY Management team will keep track of all enquiries raised via this channel, and will be able to offer assistance if deemed necessary. This step will help the host organization provide feedback whether the infrastructural resources available with them will be appropriate to support your research activity.

As per COFUND guidelines, fellowship programmes will be based on individual-driven mobility, i.e., researchers will be able to freely choose a research topic fitting their individual needs.

The subject of the research project is expected to contribute to European competitiveness and to be in the general field of Photonics and/or its applications. Within these limitations, applicants can freely choose both their research topic and their host organisation, in the spirit of the ‘European Charter for Researchers’.
