The Cor Baayen Award is awarded each year to a promising young researcher in computer science and applied mathematics. The award was created in 1995 to honour the first ERCIM President. The award consists of a cheque for 5000 Euro together with an award certificate. The selected fellow will be invited to the ERCIM meetings in autumn. A short article about the winner, together with the list of all candidates nominated, will be published in ERCIM News.

The final round of the successful “ABCDE” programme co-funded by the EC Marie Curie Actions is open. For this round, the fellowships are of 12-month duration to be spent in one ERCIM member institute. Topics cover most disciplines in Computer Science, Information Technology, and Applied Mathematics and applicants can also propose their own research agenda. The deadline for applications is 30 April 2013.
