On 6 September 2016 the official recruitment event took place in Leuven for EU Horizon 2020 MSCA-ETN NEW-MINE, the first ever Horizon 2020 project dealing with Enhanced Landfill Mining.
From an initial list of 182 eligible NEW-MINE candidates, 29 were preselected for the Recruitment Event where they were interviewed by 20 NEW-MINE Supervisors. After a lengthy deliberation the Recruitment Committee selected the 15 winning candidates, who are set to start their research around November 2016. No positions were left open. The official kick-off meeting will take place in Leuven on 7 February 2017. The meeting will be combined with a General Assembly meeting of the EURELCO network.
