The EXACT Fellows

The EXACT Marie Curie Training Network has recruited a group of fourteen highly talented university graduates to be trained as early stage researchers in the field of EU external action. The group consists of young researchers from all over the world with different academic backgrounds relevant to EU foreign policy such as political science, law and economics. Besides joint and network wide training activities, participants benefit from the design of their own individual research projects leading to a European double Ph.D. degree (co-tutelle) issued by two EXACT universities. For more information on the EXACT fellows please select a name.
