Postgraduate Training in OPTAPHI

  • 14 individual Early Stage Researcher (ESR) research projects
  • with cross-cutting skills and coherent links between projects
  • Fellowships are for a maximum of 36 months
  • with study periods in at least 2 countries
  • Each ESR is recruited by 1 partner institute for the full 36 months, and will spend a minimum of 1 year at a co-host partner
  • (eligibility rules apply to the country of recruitment)
  • Projects are grouped into 3 research themes (Work Packages): Environmental Sensing, Agri-Food Analysis, Industrial Process Monitoring
