Candidates will be encouraged to spend some time at an international partner organisation either in academia or in the business sector. This stay needs to be an uninterrupted period lasting between 3 and 9 months, and will be planned between the 10th and the 18th month of the research project. Candidates will be able to freely select the international partner organisation they want to stay in and afterwards they will need to find a supervisor belonging to that organisation. This supervisor can be chosen at the Outgoing Phase from the options provided by the Athenea3I Partnership or from the candidate’s own contacts or following their interests. Remember that all candidates must provide a Letter of Commitment from the supervisor of the partner organisation for the application process. For more information about this process, please refer to the Guide for Applicants.
