"AMAROUT Europe is a Project built by the IMDEA institutes with a clear double purpose, on one hand contributing to the development of the European researchers labor market and fostering and consolidating the European Research Area, and on the other turning Madrid into one of the top knowledge generation regions in Europe. The approach foreseen is directed to lead researcher’s career through long learning training and career development under an individual driven perspective. The project will be driven by a consortium of eight IMDEA institutes (Institute for Advanced Studies) offering individual researchers the opportunity to propose research fellowships within some of the most promising research areas: water, food science, energy, mathematics, material science, nanotechnologies, networks and software. Within its four years funding period the project will offer to more than 120 fellows the opportunity to join one of these institutes (incoming, reintegration) and receive top level training and research opportunities. It is intended to provide the project with a much longer life. The selection process will strictly follow the European Code of conduct for the recruitment of researches and the Charter for researchers, and will be implemented through 8 international panels constituted by well-known scientist and ad-hoc selected specialists in the 8 research areas. The project will be supported by, main universities and research centers in the region, offering interaction and high renowned research teams, and by private companies from the Board of trustees In conclusion the AMAROUT Europe fellowship programme will play a key role in the strategic plans of IMDEA for the next ten years to foster the international mobility of 200 internationally recognized researchers and 400 young researchers. This initiative is regarded by the regional government as key programme towards turning Madrid into a world-class centre of scientce abd excellence in the knowledge society."
