SOLARNET will support the mobility of young researchers as part of the networking activities foreseen under WP3. The mobility programme has been designed, as an additional aspect of the training program, to reinforce the contacts between different groups and to allow young researchers to begin early to establish international collaborations.
This task will be supervised by the Mobility Evaluation Committee (MEC), which will evaluate and select the submitted applications. It is important to note that mobility is also aimed at private members of SOLARNET, as well as to third entities outside the consortium.
EC funds available for this activity will cover travel and accommodation costs for about 16 young researchers staying for a minimum of 1 month to a maximum of 3 months hosted by, preferably, one of the institutions involved in SOLARNET. It is expected to support travel costs up to 600 EUR per fellow, and accommodation and subsistence costs up to 200 EUR per week (for an average duration of the visit of 8 weeks).
Applications are welcome at any time during the execution of this project, with two deadlines per year: March 15th and September 15th.
The selection of the granted proposals will be announced on March 31st and September 30th.
The mobility has to start, if approved, during the 6-month periods starting in July 1st and January 1st, so that the student has some time to organize the visit.
- Period July 1st - December 31st
- Deadline: March 15th
- Selection: March 31st
- Period January 1st - June 30th
- Deadline: September 15th
- Selection: September 30th
Applicants will be expected to send a motivation letter, a CV and a brief summary of the proposed work at the host institution (from the list below). They are encouraged to contact the host institution in advance to produce this summary in liaison with them.
