ERN Exchange Programme
The European Commission funded the ERN Exchange Programme 2020-2022 for healthcare professionals. The aim of the programme is knowledge sharing and stimulating collaboration.
The objective of the ERN Exchange Programme is to reduce disparities in specific knowledge or gaps in expertise by facilitating the development of high-level expertise in a considerable number of diseases to a big number of healthcare providers that are members or affiliated to a European Reference Network (ERN). Up to 44 one-week visit packages will be available to healthcare professionals from ERN BOND member or Affiliated Partner centres over the coming two years.
The programme is open to clinicians and other groups of healthcare professionals and invites both junior trainees and senior experts. You can find more Information at the webpage of ERN BOND.
ERN Research Mobility Fellowships
Are you a researcher? See also the ERN Research Mobility Fellowships, which 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 funding opportunity is open between March 15th – April 26th 2021.
The exchange can be carried out either:
- within the same ERN (Full Members and Affiliated Partners), OR
- between different ERNs (Full Members and Affiliated Partners), OR
- between ERN Full Members / Affiliated Partners and non-ERN institutions.
