"The objective of CASCADE -FELLOWS (CF) is to stimulate and promote the
career development of experienced researchers who show great promise to
become future leaders in the f ield of endocrine disruptors, nuclear receptor
biology and health risk assessment. The program will be built on an ongoing
highly successful trans -national fellowship and training programme, organised by
the CASCADE Network of Excellence.
CF takes this f'ship program to new levels by: 1) opening the program to
applicants from all over the world, thus adding a significant internat.
dimension to the trans -national mobility of fellows; 2) including new partner
organisations who will host the fellows within the EU member states, assoc.
and 3rd countries, thus extending the trans-national mobility of fellows
to and from a wider geographical area; 3) adding a transnat. inter-sectorial
exchange dimension between academia and SMEs to enable academic research
fellows try SME working environment without a gap in their academic careers; 4)
providing a new incoming mobility component to enable top-class 3rd country
fellows to be hosted in Europe to both enhance competition and to establish
mutually-beneficial research cooperation; 5) providing a reintegration component
to counter the brain drain of European researchers to third countries. The focal
point of the program is the career development of the individual fellows.The
programme is characterised by transparency and openness, granting the fellow
freedom to choose the research project, host organisation and host supervisor.
Guided by a personal career development plan, a one -to-one mentoring
programme and reintegration opportunities. CF provides a
comprehensive program of support for the fellow to embark on a long -term
scientific career responsive to changing market needs. It's a resubmission of a previous COFUND successful
project with new coordinator UNOTT ( not Karolinska who had to withdraw as Coord. due to staff changes but remain as a partner)"
