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.

Four 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 fourth and final MINET sub-programme of study visits, which will cover visits up to December 2009 and is now open for applications. This final call will be focused on main MINET goals to increase the interdisciplinary-multidisciplinary exchange of knowledge among senior scientists involved in MtI-MINET ongoing projects.

Proposals should be sent to the sub-programme coordinator by April 26th 2009:

Giovanni B Rossi, Francesco Crenna
University of Genova – DIMEC,
Genova, Italy


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):

Please also specify in your study visit proposal which MtI project or MINET project you are associated with.

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.
