This deliverable titled “KM Training – Development of mobility programme” (D13.8) is issued by Work Package 13, Task 5 (Implementation of Mobility Programme). It describes the development, implementation and improvement of the EURAD Mobility Programme. All data are acquired from the EVALATO mobility platform. The data were analysed and the outcome is published in this deliverable. The outcome is used to gradually steer the Mobility Programme implementation stages, reflecting also identified additional needs by the EURAD community, but respecting the financial envelop and work resources.
50 applications were submitted during 19 calls of the Mobility programme till May 2023. 47 of the applications were accepted for support, three rejected or resubmission was required. Three participants cancelled later their (submitted and accepted) applications. The resulting 44 applications/ actions are “alive” and provide the majority of data for this report.
It is obvious that the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic influenced o mobility actions and the availability of infrastructures until Q4 2022. Therefore, some mobility actions originally planned at the start of EURAD had to be postponed and adapted to new conditions. Nevertheless, since Q4 2022, when travelling and visits to infrastructures was again allowed, the Mobility Programme implementation started in its full extent and the number of applicants to the Mobility Programme increased together with the mobility actions performed.
The main results, evolution and progress of the Mobility Programme up to the end of May 2023 are presented in this document to inform the larger EURAD community about the Mobility Programme’s development, usage by EURAD partners, gender balance, costs, etc.
The quality and perception of the mobility actions will be analysed based on the grantees mission reports and reported in a planned deliverable D13.10: Update of mobility actions performed in EURAD (to be delivered by the end of 2023).
