Visiting scientists support – 2-nd call

The call will be open from 01.09.2021 until 30.09.2021. The results of the evaluation process will be announced individually to applicants in the course of October 2021.

Rationale and aim

The European Joint Programme “EJP SOIL - Towards climate-smart sustainable management of agricultural soils” considers mobility between organizations to be an asset for the personal and career development of researchers. The inter-institutional collaboration will promote the acquisition of new skills and knowledge, thereby contributing to increased research creativity, efficacy and performance.

The 2nd call aims at strengthening institutional partnerships and networks to advance scientific joint work on climate-smart agricultural soils, in line with the EJP SOIL impact pathway EIA 3 “Strengthening scientific capacities and cooperation across Europe including training of young soil scientists”.   

Who can apply?

Young or already established researchers as well as non-research laboratory technical staff from the EJP SOIL institutions may apply for financial support, as long as there is a respective budget dedicated to WP 5. Task 5.4 supports visits to both EJP SOIL and non – EJP SOIL institutions within the EU, if the training stay contributes to EJP SOIL expected impacts.
