  4. 4. Summaries • The next 2 slides give an overview of possible selection, monitoring and assessment actions, based on whether it is a -standard university PhD programme, or a -national excellence programme, or an -international excellence programme. • These actions are in use in Innsbruck in -the Infectious disease programme -the HOROS programme, or -the CORVOS programme. • AIM should be that most European programmes at least adopt the actions of a standard programme. • Even in Innsbruck several actions for our standard programme are only starting to be imposed (see blue box on last slide)!
