They must be accompanied by an abstract setting out the main arguments of the thesis (maximum 3 pages), written in English or French, together with a curriculum vitae in English or French and a certificate confirming that the doctorate has been awarded. An independent selection board has been set up comprising university professors and/or lecturers and at least one CoR member or alternate). The selection board's decisions are final.
