A 2 day meeting was held at Leiden University Medical Center on August 4th and 5th 2015. 34 candidates were asked to attend to interview for the 17 training posts available. Some candidates were interviewed remotely because of visa difficulties. Candidates were asked to make a short presentation and then were interviewed. 16 candidates were appointed and the 17th was appointed after a second advertisement. The Marie Curie rules specify that candidates can apply for a post only if they have been resident for less than 1 of the 3 previous years in the country.
