This participation is irrespective of the formal status and extension of their personnel contract at the EUR (temporary or permanent contract).
  2. “Tenured faculty” refers to research faculty with a permanent appointment at RSM or ESE.
  3. Exactly the same criteria apply for ERIM Members with a part-time academic position.
