Your contact points
why do we have a mobility agreement
We have (and want to maintain) an integrated European fusion programme

That means:

many collaborations between Associations,

coordinated activities (ie. several Associations working together under EFDA)

collective actions such as JET (all Associations working together under EFDA)

The financial support provided by the Mobility Agreement makes this possible

The “glue” which helps to hold the programme together!

Why do we have aMobility Agreement?
the purpose of the mobility agreement
From the text of the agreement:“to promote enhanced collaboration and integration of the Programme, and to foster international cooperation”

In practice, this means:

encourage collaboration between Associations on research activities,

support participation in meetings necessary for coordinated activities under EFDA,

support research activities under international agreements, and representation of the EU in specified meetings.

The purpose of the Mobility Agreement
annual budget
Every year the Commission commits funds for use under the Mobility Agreement, according to the available budget.

Therefore, each Association is given a ceiling for the year, based on past use of mobility. The sum of all the ceilings is equal to the mobility budget.

But, adjustments of the ceilings which maintain the total may be made during the year, according to any anticipated over or under spending.
