MINET Study Visists Programme Announcement
Call 3, Mar 2009 to December 2009
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
The present announcement invites researchers of the MINET Network, including the individual ‘Measuring the Impossible’ (MtI) NEST Pathfinder projects, to submit applications for financial support to make study visits for the exchange of advanced knowledge on MtI methods. All researchers in MtI projects are welcome to apply, both from MtI scientists wishing to visit another partner as well as those wishing to act as hosts. There is 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.
Three consecutive sub-programmes of study visits will be arranged during the MINET project. Information on MINET Study Visits is available on www.measuringimpossible.net or http://lesliependrill.wordpress.com/minet-wp3-study-visits-programme/.
The current call concerns the third MINET sub-programme of study visits, which will cover visits during the period March 2009 to December 2009 is now open for applications. Proposals should be sent to the sub-programme coordinator by January 31, 2009:
In your proposal please indicate in the following:
- Names and affiliations of visiting scientists(s):
- Names and affiliations of hosting scientist(s):
- Topic and brief description of purpose of study visit (about twenty lines of text, including relevance to MtI field and aims of visit):
Include, if possible, an indication of
(I) which human perception and/or interpretation and
(II) which measurement principles and methods are of interest for the proposed visit.
- Proposed period of visit:
- Indicative budget (Visitors):
- Indicative budget (Hosts):
The maximum budget nominally allocated to each study visit is 2 000 Euro and can only be used for travel and subsistence. The working time of scientists on exchange can NOT be charged to the MINET project. If there is anything left of the 2 000 Euros/study visit, some costs of the host can be covered with the remaining funding.
