The Mobility Programme (MOB) aims at training young researchers and students through delegation in other SARNET research teams in order to enhance the exchanges and the dissemination of knowledge. A total of 33 mobility actions (with average duration of 3 months) were completed at the end of the SARNET FP6 project. Most of the delegates were from Eastern Europe going to laboratories and universities in Western Europe and a large fraction of the delegates were women. The dominant area of training was on ASTEC code.
In SARNET2 a financial support covering partially the delegation cost (maximum of 1500 €/month) is provided to the organization that delegates the researcher. To apply for mobility support, the following conditions shall be fulfilled (all details are on the SARNET2 private web site): organizations shall be SARNET2 members; the work to be performed in the action shall be relevant to SARNET2 objectives and be part of the Joint Program of Activities; the delegation shall contribute to the transfer of knowledge/know-how. The allocation of funds is subject to the delivery of a delegation report and of the attestation by the delegating organization that the incurred extra costs were at least equal to the requested funds.
A successful MOB programme needs partners’ efforts to highlight research projects which could be of interest to researchers or students and to disseminate the understanding of the benefits for both institutions of this MOB program. The collected information will be advertised on the private and public SARNET2 web sites. In this context an attractive idea could be also to support university delegates to perform the final work for their master thesis and/or to attend SARNET courses in the framework of the EMSNE (European Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering) under the ENEN (European Nuclear Education Network) umbrella.
