Fragmented and localised capacities in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) activities hamper competitiveness and do not maximise the available resources (including human ones) in Europe. Mobility programmes in education demonstrate the need for and success of exchanging scientists .
The objective of staff mobility is to contribute to strengthening the capacity and competitiveness of crop protection research in Europe, with emphasis on IPM approaches, through implementing an efficient mobility programme targeting both experienced scientists and young researchers (PhD students and new post-docs). The Network has allocated substantial funding to this activity.
ENDURE Mobility Actions
ENDURE adopts various strategies to make movement more attractive. At a practical level, it eases mobility by providing more information about opportunities, administrative procedures and available accommodation through connections with the European Network of Mobility Centres ERA-MORE. At a strategic level, the mobility programme will work with the Jointly Executed Research Activities to provide more opportunities for staff exchange amongst the partners as well as with external organisations.
Both experienced scientists and young researchers (PhD students and new post-docs) from ENDURE partners.
