Research Mobility Fellowship and Research Training Workshop
Research Mobility Fellowship
Aim: This fellowship aims to financially support PhD students and medical doctors working in ERN-member institutions to undertake short scientific visits (secondments) up to 3 months fostering specialist research training outside their countries of residence and within one of the ERN host institutions. Through this training measure the fellows should acquire at their host (secondment) institution new competences and knowledge related to their research on rare diseases and with benefit to their ERN.
PhD students with a minimum of one year of research experience OR physicians having finished their first year of specialist training
Be affiliated to an ERN Full Member or to an ERN-Affiliated Partner Institution from one of the 24 ERNs at the time when the application is submitted, as well as during the proposed period of the training stay
The host (secondment) institutions must be Full or Affiliated Members of an ERN at the time when the application is submitted, as well as during the proposed period of the training stay
Added value to ERN of the mobility stay
Research Training Workshop
Aim: The aim of this call is to identify the most suitable proposals for the organization of research training workshops of 2 days targeted to the ERNs needs. Selected research training workshops will have to train ERN researchers and clinicians in ERN relevant innovative training themes. Training themes may include innovative research methodologies, diagnostic research methodologies, interdisciplinary treatment approaches, such as gene therapy and transplantation, etc. Moreover, the workshops will be aiming to provide a cross-ERN added value.
The workshops will be implemented as two day events. Topics can be proposed by the ERNs or by investigators belongining to EJP RD beneficiary institutions.
There will be two deadlines for workshop topic applications per year.
Topics will be selected taking into consideration several elements such as:
Addressing cross-cutting issues relevant for ERNs
Fostering collaboration (within and between ERNs)
No overlap with other EJP RD training activities
Relevance of the topic for the ERN(s)
Benefits for the RD community by the workshop
Appropriate training methodology
