Network

TRANSMIT is a multi-partner project that intends to mobilize the critical mass of expertise, by linking beneficiaries from 7 different countries and partners from the social field. Beneficiaries are 7 world-leading basic science labs and 3 private SMEs.

You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for his own improvement and, at the same time, share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful.

PCDPs Development

Each ESR defined, together with her/his supervisor(s), a Personal Career Development Plan (PCDP). Along with research objectives, this plan includes the researcher’s training and career needs, as well as planning for publications and participation in conferences. Attention is paid to the quality of the joint research training programme. In addition, the meaningful exposure of each ESR to other disciplines and sectors represented in the network through visits, secondments and other training events is also ensured
