The DIGS-BB Fellow Award honors outstanding PhD students after the 1st year of thesis work upon nomination by their Thesis Advisory Committee (TAC) and includes a price money of €2,000. It aims to help their research work, development of research skills, and to strengthen their research network. The allowance can be used to cover project consumables, attendance to workshops and conferences, research visits to collaborators’ labs, as well as to cover cost for a side project.
