ENDURE CROP PROTECTION GRANTS FOR SCIENTISTS FROM INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION PARTNER COUNTRIES (ICPC) - YEAR 2009
Release date: mid-April 2009
Deadline for applications: July 1, 2009 (call NOW CLOSED)
List of the selected applicants : at the bottom of this page
ENDURE is a European Network that brings together more than 300 researchers in the fields of agronomy, biology, ecology, economics and the social sciences from ten European countries to progressively restructure crop protection research and de-velopment strategies. ENDURE actively encourages the participation of partners outside Europe in its activities, particularly in addressing crop protection problems relevant to agricultural products being exported to Europe and the potential movement of exotic pests across borders. Further information on the ENDURE project can be found in the relevant pages of the ENDURE website.
ENDURE is now launching an international call for applications for grants for two scientists from International Cooperation Partner Countries (ICPC) who wish to spend a period of up to three months working at one of the ENDURE research or university participant institutions.
Integration of research teams from ICPC target countries is a priority of the ENDURE network. The aim of ENDURE-ICPC grants is to foster an exchange of knowledge between ICPC target countries and ENDURE partners in order to promote sustainable crop protection research/techniques and share experience of complex tropical crop-pest systems which may be of benefit to European agriculture.
