The research, training and mobility programme in Trentino (Trentino)
Start date: Jun 25, 2009, End date: Jun 24, 2014 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Trentino is the right bay for research and development. It hosts a large number of research labs from environmental studies to high-tech technologies. The Province of Trento allocates several resources such as infrastructure, real estate and funds to encourage research and innovation. Many institutes, both public and private, local, national and international have established their research units in Trento and Rovereto in order to transfer the knowledge from the research arena to industries. In order to facilitate the development of the research environment the PAT decided to start its Research Mobility programme. The Trentino programme started in 2003 with the first call for proposals for incoming research post-docs and implemented in 2006 with the call for proposals for Research Teams. The general objective of this proposal is to increase the number of trans-national fellowships awarded, to introduce a new outgoing and reintegration scheme and to improve the fellows’ condition. Thanks to the COFUND action the number of researchers coming from outside Italy could be increased and the local/Italian researchers be reintegrated. Besides, some researchers could profit of international experiences and then come back to Trentino. Furthermore the conditions of the fellows will be improved by promoting the implementation of the conditions described in “The European Charter for Researchers and The Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers”, in particular by offering employment contracts instead of stipends to the fellows, by establishing a career development plan at the beginning of the project and by introducing an assessment questionnaire at the end of the project. Another objective is to improve the Internet website and its English version.
