The ENGAGE Consortium is committed to support the training of scientists in the areas that are covered by the ENGAGE project and WPs. The ENGAGE Training policy aims at creating synergies in the further education of scientists and medical professionals and enhancing their skills and knowledge using results and developments emanating from the ENGAGE project. The ENGAGE Consortium also wishes to promote collaboration between ENGAGE Partner institutes and other European institutions offering national or international training programmes in relevant areas.

The ENGAGE Exchange and Mobility Program

The ENGAGE Consortium has established an Exchange and Mobility Programme for the purpose of special training related to the science undertaken in the ENGAGE project. This programme will aim to support some of the costs associated with the exchange of doctoral or post-doctoral students for 3-6 months.

With this programme, the ENGAGE Consortium offers the opportunity:

- To train at any or all of the participating centres;

- To be credited for fulfilment of PhD requirements (based on individual request from the application at his/her local University);

- To attend courses, workshops, and meetings offered outside of the participating countries;

- For participating scientists to represent the project at international meetings.

Please download the ENGAGE Training policy for more information about priorities for consideration of applicants and the Exchange and Mobility Program Application form.
