Early stage researchers (ESR) from low performing countries are less competitive in the international scientific area than ESR's form internationally-leading counterparts. This is strongly related not only to the applicants itself, but also to the environment in which they were seeded as next generation researchers - meaning Universities. The competitiveness in scientific area is related to well measurable indicators, such as impact factors, papers in high-ranking journals, H-index, competitive funding, etc. Hence RISEus2 project´s Overall Objective is to significantly strengthen the research management and administration skills of RTU RBIDC leading staff and increase the research profile of ESR hosted in RTU RBIDC in the area of biomaterials development for bone tissue replacement and regeneration based on the long-term strategic cooperation between RTU RBIDC and three internationally leading counterparts: AO Research Institute Davos, Switzerland (ARI), Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse CIRIMAT, France (INPT-CIRIMAT) and FORM-Lab Frankfurt Orofacial Regenerative Medicine, Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany (GUF). The purpose of RISEus2 is to create links and provide training which will ensure that RTU RBIDC will gain new knowledge and approaches of biomaterials research planning, implementation and exploitation. This will include methods, tools, equipment and effective infrastructure exploitation necessary to develop excellence in biomaterials research, that will boost the cooperation with the industry, thus becoming internationally competitive and attractive. The main RISEus2 activities include two way collaborative visits, mobility of staff, summer and winter schools, workshops at partner institutions, strengthening the visibility and cooperation with industry and intensive dissemination and outreach activities.
