Research Mobility Fellowships aim to support PhD students, Postdocs and medical doctors in training to undertake scientific visits outside their country of residence.
The exchange can be carried out within the same ERN (Full Members and Affiliated Partners), between different ERNs, and between ERN and non-ERN institutions.
Successful applicants should acquire new competences and knowledge related to their research on rare diseases, with a defined research plan and demonstrable benefit to the ERN of the home and/or host institution.
The research mobility fellowships are meant to cover stays of 4 weeks to 6 months duration.
