Regional innovation strategy relies on researchers' mobility
Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programmes (COFUND)
FBK - Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Trento, Italy)
FBK has designed RESTATE with the following goals:
- To contribute to the mobility of talented researchers across European Research Organizations, according to the scope of MARIE-CURIE COFUND actions;
- To contribute to the internationalization of the Trentino Research System;
- Identifying research topics of common interest to candidates, FBK Research Units and possibly local enterprises;
- Facilitate recipients in the acquisition of management tools and industry practices, and developing their complementary skills. Promoting entrepreneurship not necessarily limited to traditional technical areas;
- Providing enterprises and researchers with an opportunity to meet each other, and work together on mutually accepted projects, before deciding to commit on a long term relationship (in line with EIRMA’s “Responsible Partnering”, October 2009).
RESTATE includes 2 mobility schemes:
- Incoming: Applicants to this scheme may originate from any country inside or outside Europe, provided however that over the previous 36 months they have worked outside of Italy for at least 24 months. At the relevant deadline for submission of proposals, applicants must either be in possession of a PhD degree, or should exhibit evidence of having at least four years full time equivalent experience as researchers.

At the relevant deadline for submission of proposals, applicants must either be in possession of a PhD degree, or should exhibit evidence of having at least four years full time equivalent experience as researchers.
