CEC Fellows November 2018 newsletter
Dear colleagues, brightening your day in the November darkness - here comes the CEC Fellows Newsletter!
Some highlights in this issue: The Pufendorf Insitute has opened the call for Themes 2019, a great opportunity to get a research group together and explore innovative ideas. The Swedish Research Council has released the dates for their 2019 calls, and for all of us who struggle with the communications sections in the research applications - Mistra has released av very useful handbook on the subject.
Best wishes, Marianne, Yann and Lina
