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:
Call for the 3rd Mobility Plan
The third internal mobility plan, running from January 1, 2009 through to June 30, 2010, will be open to researchers from ENDURE partners. The total number of people to be included in the plan is not predefined, but will be set in relation to the number of applications and their duration. Both junior and senior researchers are invited to apply.
Those interested should fill in the application form:
The candidate must provide a short CV as well as approval from both hosting and sending institutions.
All documents have to be sent to the activity leader Maurizio Sattin – the message should be sent to his PA: firstname.lastname@example.org – by 15 November 2008.
All researchers participating in the third mobility plan will have to comply with specific rules.
Rules and duties
The project should be linked to a specific ENDURE activity and sub-activity(ies). The applicant should clearly state the relevance of his/her project to ENDURE activities.
The grant is intended to cover the travelling costs and stay at the hosting institution, typically for a period of one to two months for experienced researchers and three to six months for junior researchers (PhD and new post-docs).
During the mobility period, the visiting researcher will continue to be employed by his/her sending institution, i.e. ENDURE does not pay any salary.
Eligible costs will be:
Bench-fees are not applicable to ENDURE mobility and the contribution to expenses will be directly included in the budget of the hosting institution.
The budget for each researcher will be defined and communicated before the start of the mobility.
The third internal mobility plan includes 16 new applications, and 12 researchers from the 2nd mobility plan transferred to it. The former must finish the mobility period by June 2010, while the latter must end it by December 2009.
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.: email@example.com);
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. firstname.lastname@example.org). The final report should be sent within 15 days of the end of his/her visit;
download the form:
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;
