* The project presented should demonstrate a clear contribution to the candidate’s doctoral thesis. 
* Academic staff and postdoctoral fellows who completed their doctorate or equivalent highest degree (including masters, depending on the field) in or after 2021 (named or referred to in this programme as “Early Career Academics” (ECA)).
