In order to encourage doctoral students to develop a world-class scientific project during their thesis, the TESS programme offers financial support known as a Booster. A lump sum of up to 10 000€ is awarded to a limited number of projects to contribute towards the costs of data acquisition (fieldwork, analysis, calculations, etc.) and equipment, etc. The funds are to be used to further develop a particular aspect of the thesis, increasing the visibility of the doctoral student and encouraging international recognition. Excellent students registered in the first year of their PhD are encouraged to apply.
