2020 researchers: Train To Move (T2M) is a new transnational mobility fellowship programme promoted by the Università degli Studi di Torino (UNITO) with the active support of the banking foundation Compagnia di San Paolo (CSP). T2M it is cofounded within the FP7 People specific programme – Cofund Actions. With the general aim of contributing to foster excellent research in Europe to face the challenges of contemporary society, it is designed to create favourable conditions for transnational mobility of high skilled researchers and to promote transectoral mobility between public/academy and industrial/private sector. T2M is exploited through 2 calls for proposals. The present call for proposals will provide 14 fellowships addressed to experienced researchers (please check for eligibility criteria in par.6 Selection and evaluation criteria). A second call will be issued in March 2015. T2M provides incoming fellowships to researchers, who at the time of the call deadline, have up to 7 years since PhD or have a track record in full time equivalent research activities of 4-10 years in the last ten years since MSc. Mobility can be from EU Member or Associated Countries or from other Third Countries. Fellowships will last 24 months. Fellows will be hosted at UNITO, one of the most prestigious Italian universities. UNITO will provide fellows with access to research groups working in 27 highly equipped hosting departments carrying out research in all research fields, except Architecture and Engineering. Fellows will furthermore benefit from the vivid regional context where the University is placed and from the long lasting collaborations amongst the public and private stakeholders. T2M proposals will contribute to increase the competitiveness of the regional context, enhancing its international profile. To apply, applicants will submit proposals in one of the research areas proposed by UNITO departments and described in Annex I of this call for proposal. In order to ease the integration of fellows and to make the experience a win win game, research areas address a broad scientific field of research in which proposals can be developed at the hosting department.
