Call Overview

Call Category: Mobility
Managing Body: European
Opening: August 1, 2016
Closing: October 31, 2016

To support its objectives, ENVRIplus launched an Exchange of Personnel (EoP) program to enhance cross-Research infrastructure mobility of dedicated RI staff. This program will help to disseminate the know-how of RI specialists and provide practical hands-on experience on the operation procedures.

The cross-domain staff exchange will take the form of short stays in the RI, organized either on a unilateral (1 person from one RI goes to another RI), bilateral (between two RIs involving 1 person from each RI), or on trilateral basis (involving 3 institutes and 3 staff persons in total). While bilateral and trilateral exchange will strongly be preferred, proposals for unilateral exchange will also be considered.

The principal activity of the exchanged personnel during his/her stay at the RI should aim at cross-fertilization of ideas and experiences of RI staff and promote knowledge transfer of new technologies, best practices, protocols, approaches and policies of RIs instead of data acquisition or fundamental research.

There are three proposal deadlines

  • August, 31

  • October,  31

  • December, 31
