The IEE welcomes applicants for Eccellenza, Prima, or ERC grants to be hosted in our Institute. The applicants should send a preliminary inquiry to the acting Director by email, together with their CV and a brief description of their research project. This inquiry should be done at least 6 months before the grant submission deadline. The proposal will be discussed at the next meeting of the board of directors, and if approved, the applicant will be invited for a public talk. A final decision would then be made soon after and communicated to the candidate.
