Key research areas for mobility are identified and regularly updated in close collaboration with the Jointly Executed Research Activities. Mobility plans are drawn up annually to exchange personnel at different levels by making internal calls and by organising joint appointments of staff. Organisations having specific temporary positions available could welcome professors or researchers coming from other ENDURE partners, if consistent with the network's objectives. Joint dissertations will be pursued so that PhD students can stay for a long time (for example 12-18 months) in a collaborating laboratory.
Internal mobility involves:
The first mobility plan involves only people belonging to the network's partners. The period of implementation spans from January 2007 to June 2008. The plan includes a total of 29 researchers (8 senior researchers and 21 junior researchers); all research partners are involved either as sending or hosting institution.
For each stage, the length of mobility period was roughly set at 1-2 months for senior researchers and 3-6 months for junior researchers. During the visit, the researcher must continue to be employed by his/her sending organisation; salary is not an eligible cost.
Eligible costs are:
The budget for each researcher was decided and allocated before the start of the project. Only this budget can be refunded by ENDURE unless any change is previously agreed with the activity leader.
The following steps should be taken:
a) the researcher, prior to the start of the visit, needs to confirm with the activity leader, Maurizio Sattin, the start and end dates of the visit as well as the hosting institution (the message should be sent to his p.a.: firstname.lastname@example.org);
b) at the end of the visit, the researcher has to send a final report to the activity leader, Maurizio Sattin, (the message should be send to his p.a. email@example.com). The final report should be sent within 15 days of the end of his/her visit;
c) the researcher will be refunded directly by his/her institution after the activity leader has approved and transmitted the final report to the reference person of the specific organisation. The reference person for each organisation should inform his/her administration of the above rules;
d) all visits must end by June 2008.
These rules apply from the time this mobility webpage is published (October 2007). Therefore all people who have finished their visit before this date should send their final report by the end of November at the latest.
