The VIA Programme awards approximately 25 positions per year. VIAs are intended for recent graduates from university or higher technical institutes, or university postgraduates who want to work in a research group. This programme is aimed at candidates specializing in applied science, computing, engineering, or administration (HR, finance, law, etc.). Currently available project descriptions can be found here. VIA contracts are granted for one year initially and are normally extended for a second year.
