Note: At the present time, ENDURE does not have funding to cover mobility costs. However, ENDURE partner organisations may have such funding ( click here for details on ENDURE mobility partners). Individuals and/or their hosting institution are encouraged to search for such funds and take advantage of the resources made available here.
During ENDURE's four years as a Network of Excellence, the mobility of researchers and staff contributed to the defragmentation of the European research sector in terms of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), creating a human network which included young scientists as ‘seeding’ resources for future collaborations, and senior scientists as promoters of long-lasting collaborations among the participating institutions.
ENDURE's mobility work also contributed to inserting ENDURE's network of institutions into a wider international network through visits of scientists from International Cooperation Partner Countries (ICPC) to ENDURE partner institutions with the aim of establishing stable collaborations.
