Supporting collaborative projects through exchanges

The Staff Exchanges scheme 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 exchanges benefit from new knowledge, skills and career development perspectives, while participating organisations increase their research and innovation capacities.
