What kind of mobility ? candidates.
To promote mobility Eurodoc has joined forces with MCFA (marie Curie Fellowship association). We have jointly organized the ESRM2004 conference in Lison in wich we discussed the problem faced by ESR’s when considering mobility. A central goal of the conference was to show several examples of good practise in which organisations or institutions provide mobility plans that avoid those problems.
