Widening Participation (activities related to extending cooperation with less active EU countries)
TRANSCAN2 offers some examples of ‘inclusiveness’ measures (not exclusively addressing EU13):
a) exchange/mobility schemes of individual researchers/ professionals in order to bring new expertise to an existing multidisciplinary translational team,
b) recruitment of individual researchers/professionals in order to cover expertise and “knowhow” unavailable in the existing team,
c) exchanges/mobility of researchers (especially young researchers) between teams and countries participating in the project to foster a multi-disciplinary approach in research,
d) short term training of scientists, as well as operational staff,
e) technical workshop referring to the scientific work planned in the project,
f) short training (1 or few weeks) of several partner teams.
TRANSCAN2 also includes a specific task focused on developing a strategy to improve the partners’ success in the joint call.
