The LIST of the training courses/summer schools/workshops/conferences within CREMLINplus Fellowship Programme (WP9 - Tasks 9.1 and 9.2)

 

CREMLINplus Fellowship Programme (CREMLINplus FP)  is an important element of the Horizon 2020 CREMLINplus project, initiated and fully funded by the project.

The main objectives of the CREMLINplus FP are:

  • contributing to capacity building within Russian research infrastructures (RU RIs) by enabling their managers and operators to take part in short training courses/workshops/conferences/schools/staff and knowledge exchange visits on management issues of research infrastructures in EU and Russia that are relevant to their professional interests and priorities of EU-Russia S&T cooperation,
  • contributing to sustainable development of the RU RIs by strengthening the skills and abilities, developing and advancing knowledge of their staff,
  • strengthening the relations between the European and Russian research infrastructures by building a sustainable network.

The main target groups of the CREMLINplus FP are the managers and operators of the 11 priority Russian RIs mentioned in the recommendation list of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation (LIST-11) and the 5 Russian megascience projects, as well the other Russian RIs.

CREMLINplus FP offers scholarships supporting the participation of employees of the Russian research infrastructures in the thematic and horizontal training courses/summer schools/workshops/staff and knowledge exchange visits dedicated to improving  skills and ways of managing research infrastructures in different thematic areas. These training initiatives cover topics specific for research infrastructures grouped in the 6 thematic domains according to the ESFRI classification, and also focus on cross-cutting themes relevant to all research infrastructures.

The CREMLInplus FP supports the participation of managers and operators of the Russian research infrastructures in any event from the LIST of the thematic and horizontal training courses/summer schools/workshops/staff and knowledge exchange visits, which meet the objectives of the CREMLINplus fellowship programme. This LIST has been developed by the WP9 team and is updated regularly. Scholarship applicants can also suggest other courses/initiatives outside the LIST by providing detailed information on organiser, content and how this training will enhance management skills.

Access to identified training activities /staff and knowledge exchange visits will be granted to the Russian research infrastructures staff via CREMLInplus FP calls for applications with several evaluation deadlines per year. The CREMLINplus scholarships cover all support costs: travel costs, accommodation, the training fee, visa and insurance.

Due to COVID-19 the start of the programme was postponed by some months,  it has undergone some adaptations and a series of changes has been implemented, including  adjusted deadlines.
