Staff Exchanges

Access managerial and leadership expertise directly from leading research infrastructures




The purpose of RItrain staff exchanges is for managerial staff from European Research Infrastructures to develop managerial and leadership expertise in areas that are new to them, or that they feel their research infrastructure needs to develop specific expertise in, by making short knowledge-exchange visits to research infrastructures that are noted for their excellence in the same area. The staff exchanges form an integral part of Executive Master in Management of Research Infrastructures, but can also be undertaken independently of the Master course.
