Section 6. Project proposal and supporting documents
Here you will be required to provide your CV, Project Proposal, and List of Publications. All the documents should be in English, as up-to-date as possible. We do not allow the inclusion of attachments, but you can directly cut & paste the text from your documents.
Your CV (Resume) should contain a summary of your education, experience, and skills.
Your Project Proposal is the most important part of the application! This document should be between 8000 and 32000 characters in length (2 to 3 A4 pages when printed) and may include as many figures and tables as required.
The project proposal MUST follow the structure described below:
Background information: this section should represent a half to two thirds of the overall length of the proposal, and will describe the current status of your research activities, the objectives you set at the start of this project and more generally, how your work will contribute to developments in your research field. It is important that you tell us what you intend to do during your proposed stay.
Case for HPC-Europa2 funding: in this section, applicants must justify their request for access to the programme's large-scale infrastructures. For instance, applicants should demonstrate how their research would benefit from accessing HPC-Europa2's HPC systems and interacting with their local scientific host. Note that such justifications usually benefit from specific evidence, e.g., if you wish to simulate larger systems than you currently can, you should
1. justify the necessity to simulate larger systems for the problem being studied; and
2. demonstrate that the resources to which you currently have access are inadequate for this purpose. Is is also important to include in this section your objectives and your expectations from your visit.
Your list of publications: you are also required to include a list of your most recent publications in your application. Those with no prior publications may include a list of posters or abstracts presented at conferences. If you have none of the above, simply include an empty list of publications with a statement such as 'I have not published any results in a refereed publication'.
