let me share with all of you the great news that MARVEL has been
approved for Phase II (2018-22), with flying colours. This is an
occasion for me to thank everyone involved, from the faculty to the
students and researchers to the management team, for all the
sustained and genuine effort - and especially to engage the SNSF
in the recommendations that were made; this was very important,
and I thank you a lot.
As is now customary for Phase II, we are approved for year 5 at
100% (steady-state funding); in December the decision will be made
for Years 6-8, where funding could ramp up or decrease, to a total
for Phase II that is between 80% and 120% of the Phase I. This
bonus will be scored largely on our activities in KTT, equal
opportunities, education, and communication - so please take note, and
keep informing the management (firstname.lastname@example.org) of anything of note.
