Who is eligible?

Eligible are excellent doctorate students of all participating institutes, who do research in the field of private law with tangencies to EU Law. Private law is understood in a very broad sense here, covering such fields as company law, private international and procedural law, and competition law.

There will be 24 participating doctorate students, coming from the named universities, as well as from Katowice, Kraków, Leuven, Genova, Oxford and Hamburg.

Free accommodation will be granted. Further information on additional support and other issues can be found here.
