Personnel Exchange Programme 2012

The call of the ISJRP Personnel Exchange Programme (PEP) launched in November 2011 prompted an unexpectedly high number of good applications. In total, forty-seven proposals were submitted. Given the limited funds available for the call, only ten could be approved for funding. The success rate reached 21%.
