These are the results of the May-June 2021 RYA selection process. 16 candidates were admitted out of the 19 who applied this year. The success rate was thus around 85 %.

We initially planned to admit only 10 applicants, but due to the good quality of the applications and after having received the approval of the Board and of the funders, we managed to admit 16 applicants instead.

The selection committee, to be found below, was formed by reknown international academics.

After having received the two reviews for each applicant, we had panel discussions and, according to the selection criteria, the main reasons for which applicants were selected were these:

- expertise of the researcher

- academic merits of the research project

- feasability of the project in terms of the proposed civic action and policy input

We used the EC threshold of 6,5 for funding eligibility.
