  3. The visit should have a minimum stay of two weeks at the host institution.
  4. Applications to renew successful visits will be considered in the following year(s).
  5. On completion of the visit, the visiting expert and the host institution should provide comprehensive reports outlining the impact the visit has had on the educational and research programs of the host institution.
