Twinning for excellence in non-invasive brain stimulation in Western Balkans

Objective

TWINNIBS aims to strengthen the Institute for Medical Research - IMR’s research and innovation (R&I) as well as research management and administration capacities and to develop it into a prospective leading partner in international consortia that can attract strategic investments and R&I funding. TWINNIBS will promote interest in neuroscience research in Serbia and the region, and help to advance it, focusing on the multidisciplinary field of non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS). NIBS is a set of techniques for transcranial (non-invasive) modulation of the activity in the specific brain areas and the large-scale brain networks to which they contribute. This is an innovative approach to neuroscience research and, ultimately, clinical treatment of a wide spectrum of neuropsychiatric conditions. TWNINIBS will be a coordination and support tool for IMR to bring NIBS research in Serbia to a new level by partnering with leading European R&I institutions from Denmark, Italy, Germany, and Austria. TWNNIBS will include a comprehensive set of cooperation and coordination activities to strengthen the scientific and technological capacities of IMR, including short term mobility, virtual and in-person short term expert visits, workshops, and boot-camps. A series of collaborative small-scale projects will be conducted with the personalisation of NIBS as an overarching theme. TWINNIBS will strengthen the IMR research management and administration capacities and foster organizational changes. The Centre for NIBS as well as R&I Project Management Unit will be established within the IMR. TWINNIBS will have a substantial scientific, economic/technological, and societal impact towards outcomes specified in this topic as well as a long-term impact on the R&I in the European space, with a special focus on the Western Balkans region. To realise the full potential of the TWINNIBS project a comprehensive set of communication, dissemination, and exploitation measures will be implemented.
