Call 2, June 2008 to February 2009 Study Visits
The EU MINET – Measuring the Impossible Network project aims to achieve a long-term integration and advancement of interdisciplinary research and novel investigative methods in Europe. The measurement of multidimensional phenomena mediated by human interpretation and/or perception for measuring properties such as comfort, naturalness, perceived quality, feelings, body language and consciousness is to be advanced. ftp://ftp.cordis.europa.eu/pub/nest/docs/1-nest-measuring-290507.pdf
Researchers of the MINET Network, including the individual ‘Measuring the Impossible’ (MtI) NEST Pathfinder projects were invited to submit applications for financial support to make study visits for the exchange of advanced knowledge on MtI methods. This included both from MtI scientists wishing to visit another partner as well as those wishing to act as hosts. There was some flexibility in the form of study visit – anything ranging from a bilateral ‘one-to-one’ visit between individual scientists up to a visit of a group of researchers to one laboratory.
The secondMINET sub-programme of study visits covered visits during the period June 2008 to February 2009.
Sub-programme coordinator: University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
