The LLP Italian National Agency will support MathMods IP, with a contribution for living expenses and travel costs for selected Master and PhD students from partners institutions.

We assume to select:

  • a maximum of 30 students (MSc or PhD) for the 75% contribution for travel costs and the contribution for accommodation and subsistence costs: this corresponds to 4 students for each partner institution (but a total of 10 students from the three Polish universities);
  • a maximum of 15 students (MSc or PhD) only for the 75% contribution for travel costs: this corresponds to 2 students for each partner institution (but a total of 5 students from the three Polish universities).

The contact person of each institution in the Organizing Committee is responsible for the selection of students in their universities.
