New EU-funded project focuses on East European researchers working in biotechnology

A new EU-funded specific support action entitled InJoy & Train, with project consortium members from four EU countries as well as Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Armenia and Kazakhstan, is going to be present at the EU-Russia International Biotechnology Symposium in St. Petersburg, Russia between 6-9 June 2006.

InJoy & Train aims to establish an East European cooperation network for the international joint training of the consortium member countries in the “Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology” theme of the future 7th Framework Programme. The project wishes to strengthen the link among the researchers of EU countries and Newly Independent States working in the fields of Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology. To achieve this, the consortium will organize training workshops in Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Armenia and Belarus on the Framework Programmes of the EU, their financing opportunities, financial instruments, and the know-how of successful participation. The workshops will target researchers, multipliers and SMEs in the countries mentioned above. The first workshop will take place in Almaty, Kazakhstan, on 22-23 June 2006. InJoy & Train has recently launched its website which offers various services to its registered users: free registration and a detailed profile form, a partner search facility, a virtual forum assisting the networking of website users, training material for the training workshops, and information on events organized within the project as well as related events within the areas of Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology.
