The CEU Anniversary Committee received a number of very good applications for the 20th Anniversary Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme.  A subcommittee reviewed the proposals, and selected five projects, based on the criteria announced in the call. There were other remarkable and interesting projects that unfortunately could not be supported from the limited funds available but the members very much hope that many of those projects will nonetheless succeed from other sources. The Provost and the Anniversary Committee would like to thank everyone for submitting their applications for the 20th Anniversary Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme.
