    Cor BaayenAbout Cor Baayen

    The Cor Baayen Award is named after the first president of ERCIM and the ERCIM 'president d'honneur'. Cor Baayen played an important role in its foundation. Cor Baayen was scientific director of the Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica (CWI) in the Netherlands, from 1980 to 1994.

    Baayen joined the institute in 1959 as a researcher of the department of pure mathematics, where he became group leader in 1965. As scientific director, Cor Baayen convinced the government to include CWI in a program that stimulated Dutch computer science research. He initiated or stimulated several new research areas including cryptography, computer algebra and performance analysis.

    ERCIM's participation in research projects and other co-operations

    ERCIM is participating in several projects as co-ordinator or associated partner. In these projects several member institutes carry out the research while ERCIM takes care of administrative tasks.

    ERCIM offers assistance in preparing H2020 ICT research proposals, and in managing ICT projects by carrying out the administrative and financial coordination.

    Our long expertise has been a key success factor in getting innovative ICT research proposals funded across the different European Framework Programmes. ERCIM is open to cooperation with any research institution and industry. In order for the ERCIM office to commit to the preparation of a project, the proposal must involve a minimum of one ERCIM member.

    Why to apply for an ERCIM Fellowship?

    The Fellowship Programme enables bright young scientists from all over the world to work on a challenging problem as fellows of leading European research centers. In addition, an ERCIM fellowship helps widen and intensify the network of personal relations and understanding among scientists. The programme offers the opportunity to ERCIM fellows:

    • to work with internationally recognized experts
    • to improve their knowledge about European research structures and networks
    • to become familiarized with working conditions in leading European research centres
    • to promote cross-fertilization and cooperation, through the fellowships, between research groups working in similar areas in different laboratories.

    How are the fellows selected?

    Each application is reviewed by one or more senior scientists in each ERCIM institute. ERCIM representatives decide on the candidates to whom Fellowships are offered, taking into account the following:

    • the qualification of the applicant
    • the overlap of interest between the applicant and the hosting institution
    • available funding (from the hosting institute).

    The number of available positions varies from call to call and depends mainly from the needs of the member institutes and their available funding.

    Equal Opportunities
    ERCIM is committed to ensuring equal opportunities and promoting diversity. People seeking employment within the ERCIM consortium are not discriminated against because race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, marital status or disability.

    Costs for travelling to and from the host institutions will be reimbursed on the basis of an economic class airplane ticket or first class train ticket. Travel by car will be reimbursed on the basis of a first class train ticket. No moving expenses are allocated.

    Participation in scientific conferences
    The Fellow is encouraged to attend and to submit papers to scientific conferences during his or her fellowship. ERCIM-EEIG will cover registration costs and travelling expenses up to a maximum sum calculated at a rate of 100 Euro per month under the condition that the fellow has an accepted paper at the conference.

    Insurance
    The fellow is covered by a personal insurance by EGIDE, Centre International des Etudiants et Stagiaires, except for Switzerland (see http://www.egide.asso.fr/), the cost of which is paid by ERCIM-EEIG. The insurance covers medical transportation costs if needed, payment of a lump sum for invalidity or death, personal liability. Female fellows are informed that all expenses related to pregnancy are not covered by this insurance. The insurance does not cover the fellow's family. The fellow will have to conform strictly to the modalities required by EGIDE to obtain benefit of this insurance.

    It should be noted that a Fellow shall not be covered by the insurance provided by EGIDE during any period of the Fellowship Programme that the Fellow spends in his country of origin. Country of origin shall be defined as the country in which the Fellow is deemed a national, and/or another country designated by EGIDE in the event that the Fellow normally resides in a country other than his country of nationality.

    Contract
    The fellows are appointed by an agreement for a reasearch training programme with an allowance depending on the country (see table above) and a duration of either eighteen or twelve months.

    It should be noted that the Fellowship Agreement does not constitute a contract of employment. As such, no contributions are made, on behalf of the fellow, in respect of unemployment insurance or either state or private retirement schemes. The fellow will not, therefore, be entitled to any unemployment or retirement benefits under the Fellowship Agreement.

    Why to apply for an ERCIM Fellowship?

    The Fellowship Programme enables bright young scientists from all over the world to work on a challenging problem as fellows of leading European research centers. In addition, an ERCIM fellowship helps widen and intensify the network of personal relations and understanding among scientists. The programme offers the opportunity to ERCIM fellows:

    • to work with internationally recognized experts
    • to improve their knowledge about European research structures and networks
    • to become familiarized with working conditions in leading European research centres
    • to promote cross-fertilization and cooperation, through the fellowships, between research groups working in similar areas in different laboratories.

    How are the fellows selected?

    Each application is reviewed by one or more senior scientists in each ERCIM institute. ERCIM representatives decide on the candidates to whom Fellowships are offered, taking into account the following:

    • the qualification of the applicant
    • the overlap of interest between the applicant and the hosting institution
    • available funding (from the hosting institute).

    The number of available positions varies from call to call and depends mainly from the needs of the member institutes and their available funding.

    Equal Opportunities
    ERCIM is committed to ensuring equal opportunities and promoting diversity. People seeking employment within the ERCIM consortium are not discriminated against because race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, marital status or disability.
