Visiting Scientist Programme
Visiting scientist programme
To stimulate interaction and collaboration between the scientists of the alliance, EU-LIFE establishes a visiting scientist programme as a way to open up institutional assets (knowledge, technology, infrastructure, equipment, core facilities) to each other and provide the individual researchers with the added value of the alliance. We invite PhD students, postdocs, technicians, staff scientists and PI’s of EU-LIFE to visit partner institute and participate in several types of training activities, plug in on each other’s core facilities, visit colleagues to learn a specific method and / or technique, and ultimately to start scientific collaborations. The visits can have the duration of a couple of days up to 6 months.
Upon identifying the research group/core facility of interest, the candidate researcher will ensure that both PIs/heads facility involved agree with the visit. To formalize the process, the candidate applies to the EU-LIFE visiting scientist programme by sending a 1-page description of the scientific project and relevance of the visit and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. Further questions will be answered by the EU-LIFE training working group.
After the scientific visit, the researcher will send a 1-page report to the institute Directors and the EU-LIFE Coordinator on the outcome of the visit.
