Topics and Supervisors

The list of topics and supervisors will be continuously updated during the preparation of the call.


GNeuS is aiming to maximize the output of fellows and to fit their individual needs. The research programmes will be then proposed by the fellows in a research area of their choice, based on the research fields of the MLZ-partners.

Some research topics suggested in the context of Call n.2 are listed below.
