NEUROMED will engage in a number of actions to promote and improve the quality of research in participant labs.
Promote twinning and multilateral cooperation: during the first 12 months of the project, NEUROMED will organize workshops on each of its four areas of research. The goal of the workshops will be to promote twinning arrangements between emerging labs and established centres of excellence in the EU countries.
Promote recruitment: NEUROMED will help centres in the MPC to recruit young researchers to join their staff.
Long and short term exchanges of research staff: NEUROMED will promote exchanges of PhD students, post-docs and permanent staff between the different labs participating in the project.
Co-supervision of Ph.D. students: Ph.D students in MPC centers will be co-supervised by staff in the center and by supervisors belonging to EU labs.
Events: NEUROMED will organize workshops, lectures, summer schools and in situ training in the areas of research covered by the project. All events organized by the project will be held in the MPC countries and will bring together researchers from MPC and EU labs.
Improve research infrastructure: NEUROMED will organize the loan or donation of equipment to labs in MPC and will help them to apply for national and regional funding allowing additional purchases.
Improve MPC participation in the EU Framework Programme: NEUROMED will help labs in MPC to participate in the EU Framework Programme, making them aware of opportunities as they arise, helping them to find partners, and assisting them in project planning, budgeting and administrative formalities.
