The call for Research Mobility Fellowships aims to support PhD students, Postdocs and medical doctors in training to undertake scientific visits fostering specialist research training outside their countries of residence.
The goal of the workshops is to train researchers and clinicians affiliated to ERN- Full Members or – Affiliated Partners in relevant topics on research in rare diseases. Training themes may include innovative research methodologies, diagnostic research methodologies, interdisciplinary treatment approaches, such as gene therapy and transplantation, etc.
The first aim is to encourage sharing of knowledge on rare diseases and rare cancers of health care professionals, researchers and patients. The second aim is to enable or increase the participation of usually underrepresented countries in Europe (see below) in new and existing research networks.
