Staff Exchanges funds short-term international and inter-sectoral exchanges of staff members involved in research and innovation activities of participating organisations.
The aim is to develop sustainable collaborative projects between different organisations from the academic and non-academic sectors (in particular small and medium-sized enterprises) from around the world.
People involved in staff exchange programmes benefit from new knowledge, skills and career development perspectives, while participating organisations increase their research and innovation capacities.
The European Commission will announce the list of successful applicants around mid-June 2022.
