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 second mobility plan will involve only people from ENDURE partners. The implementation period runs from January 2008 to June 2009.
The total number of people included in the mobility plan is not predefined, but will be set in relation to the number of applications and their duration. Both junior and senior researchers will be involved. For each stage, the length of the mobility period is roughly set at one to two months for senior researchers and three to six months for junior researchers.
All researchers participating in the second mobility plan will have to comply with specific rules.
Rules and duties
The second mobility plan, running from January 1, 2008 through to June 30, 2009, will be open to candidates from ENDURE partners. The grant is intended to cover the costs of travelling and stay at the host institute, 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 must continue to be employed by his/her sending institution, i.e. ENDURE does not pay any salary.
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.
Eligible costs will be:
• Travelling: one return travel from the sending to the hosting institution (max € 750)
• Accommodation and living expenses according to sending institution rules; however all costs should be documented.
To calculate the budget for each stay we roughly considered the monthly allowance used in the Marie Curie actions which are set according to the country of the hosting institution. The following contributions to expenses for the hosting institution have been decided:
• €500 per month for clearly-defined laboratory work
• €250 per month for a desk job
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 total number of people included in the annual mobility plan is not predefined, but will be set in relation to the number of applications and their duration.
