  • academic publications in internationally reviewed journals and / or publishing houses
  • statements on the candidate’s academic profile and potential in the form of expert reviews, requested by the candidate, from different institutions and, where possible, from different countries
  • the academic quality and feasibility of the research project proposed by the candidate
