Aveiro, Portugal),
* a career exploratory allowance (i.e., a single payment for attending
job interviews, additional courses, job fairs, etc.), and
* coverage of the expenses related to the participation of the ESR in
research and training activities (contribution to research-related costs,
meetings, conference attendance, training actions, etc.).
