Novel Approach: Transnational Postgraduate Education and Training Programme in Musculoskeletal Regenerative Research
Start date: Oct 1, 2016,
End date: Aug 31, 2019
In this project, Yildirim Beyazit University, University of Utrecht, University of Bristol, Heidelberg University and Institute of Rizzoli will participate for establishing a network between high quality researchers both in basic and clinical sciences in musculoskeletal education and trainining (for third cycle degree education) for medical doctors and basic scientists in order to provide high quality in musculoskeletal regenerative medicine in the application of innovative approaches.It is required to create a network in musculoskeletal regenerative research for generating innovative approaches and bench to bed side applications for diagnosis and treatment to satisfy the needs of clinical orthopaedic practices in regenerative medicine.The overall objectives of the project is to support the cooperation between European Higher Education Institutions in musculoskeletal regenerative medicine research through developing and conveying knowledge of Research & Development (R&D). In the project, all common shared scientific and educational ideas will be considered as a significant asset for developing better diagnostics and more effective treatments in the musculoskeletal diseases.
The project will share the ideas by meetings, symposia, webinars, pilot site visits, project website and workshops. All partners will contribute to workshops and meetings. Meetings (2 days), Work package meetings (2 Days) ,Workshops (2 days) and Webinars will be held periodically. Cultural trips will be organised range from 1 day to 2 days. All the project participants will be involved in all activities.
The Objectives of The Projects is described as it follows:
To promote networking, good practice in research on musculoskeletal regenerative medicine; stimulate dialogue for post graduate education and training practices to develop innovative diagnostic and therapeutical tools,
To identify and raise awareness on the key framework issues (particularly in multidisciplinary studies) of cross-border research collaboration and knowledge transfer in EU countries,
To provide practical support for research collaboration and for long distance learning by webinars and teaching modules part of PhD education programmes through creating and running a web portal which allows identifying cross-border collaboration aspects, legal frameworks and good practice.
The projects also aims to improve language and social skills and competences , organisational skills and competences.
Target groups of the project are students, scholars, researchers and medical doctors in musculoskeletal regenerative medicine field from neighbouring countries.The project will increase transnational communication in higher education institutions involved in innovative research and education on musculoskeletal regenerative medicine in Europe and neighbouring countries via personal contacts to networks of projects participants, international meetings, conferences, seminars, webinars.
Final beneficiaries comprise: any research based organisations and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and individuals potentially participating in cross border research collaboration projects or research staff exchange, including HEIs and, enterprises (Industry). The project will increase the public awareness and support of industry and governmental bodies towards the needs of Innovative research to develop methodologies to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal diseases.
The expected results of the project are described as it follows:
Increase research collaboration of the five organisations will ensure to increase the quality of research in Musculoskeletal Regenerative Medicine, Increase competence of research staff and students in horizontal and basic skills will ensure the implemantation of innovative approaches to develop methodologies for diagnosis and therapy of Musculoskeletal disease, Increase the public awareness and govermental bodies towards the needs of Innovative research to develop methodologies to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal diseases, Increase transnational communication in HEI involved in third cycle degree and innovative research on Musculoskeletal regenerative medicine in Europe and neighbouring Middle East, Near East and Mediterranean Countries who are not members of EU via personal contacts to networks of projects participants, international meetings, conferences, seminars, webinars, Increase regional interest in the researches on Musculoskeletal regenerative medicine and encourage the institutions to initiate advanced studies and cooperations in the field, Increase the improvement in the underdeveloped institutions in terms of medical facilities and diagnosis, Diminish the risks of malpractices innovative diagnostic and theraupatic approaches in Musculoskeletal diseases.
