CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
ENDURE GRANTS FOR SCIENTISTS FROM INCO COUNTRIES
Release date: 13 June 2008
Deadline for applications: 9th August 2008
As part of the 2nd Joint Programme of Activities (January 2008 - June 2009), ENDURE activity IA3 (Mobility), in collaboration with sub-activity SA3.2 (Foster the participation of research teams from INCO target countries), are launching an international call for applications for grants for two scientists from INCO countries 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 INCO target countries is a priority of the ENDURE network. The aim of ENDURE - INCO grants is to foster an exchange of knowledge between INCO 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.
The grants will be awarded to two scientists with a research position relevant to crop protection issues in one of the INCO countries who wish to spend a three-month period working at one of the ENDURE research (list is available at http://www.endure-network.eu/what_is_endure/participants/research_organisations) or university (list is available at http://www.endure-network.eu/what_is_endure/participants/universities) participant institutions. A list of INCO countries can be accessed at:
