Will it be opened again in 2020? I would like to apply (I missed this deadline, unfortunately). What about the internship duration and monthly allowance?
How many expert recommendation letters should I have and do I need to write my essay application and resume in two languages? I got my master's and doctor's in Sweden at Linnaeus University (Master in Mathematics and Modelling. Specialisation: Algebra with Cryptography and Coding).
