They recruit researchers eligible to participate in the IMSC to fulfill project objectives, oversee their work, provide training in research and interdisciplinary skills, and provide travel opportunities.
  • Partner organizations - institutions that do not sign the grant agreement; are not beneficiaries, they participate in the implementation of the project, providing the training process and accepting scientists for the period of the secondment.
