actually the scholarship is great. the only problem is they treat you like a student (PhD scholar in other countries is an entry level faculty position), but still make us work with only 21 days of holiday a year. no summer vacation for me :(
kn19h7, does your friend work at IDMI (interactive digital media institute)?
Well, 21 days a year is much more than mine...
I'm not sure which institute he is in, only that his PhD is about human-computer interaction, and started this January.
