The aim of the PITF is to provide a worldwide forum for young tax scholars from all over the world to meet and discuss their ongoing research projects. In order to qualify, applicants must:
- Have obtained their PhD
- Be under the age of 50
- Spend 30% or more of their work time on research-related activities (regardless of the place in which such activities are performed: universities, international organizations, institutes, research centres, etc.)
Candidates are expected to be in the process of developing a comprehensive research project on international, European or comparative taxation, preferably different from the one that granted them their doctoral degree. University professors and lecturers are particularly encouraged to apply.
