The programme aims to support PhD students, postdocs and medical doctors in training to undertake scientific visits to foster specialised research training outside their country of residence.
The exchange can be carried out (1) within the same ERN (Full Members and Affiliated Partners), (2) between different ERNs (Full Members and Affiliated Partners), or (3) between ERN Full Members / Affiliated Partners and non-ERN institutions.
Either the home or host (secondment) institution must be a Full Member or Affiliated Partner of an ERN at the time of application and during the proposed period of the training stay.
Successful applicants should acquire new competences and knowledge related to their research on rare diseases, present a defined research plan and provide a demonstrable benefit to the ERN of the home and/or host institution.
The Research Mobility Fellowships are for stays of 4 weeks to 6 months duration.
