Yes, I recommend applying for multiple tasks.

I don't think we have informed students if they have applied for a task 
which has had multiple applicants in the past, but maybe it would be a 
good idea. The mentors will have to discuss this.

I think Thilo was asking if they might be offered another task if they 
had applied for something for which someone else got chosen. I don't 
think we've done this in the past and I don't think we've needed to.
