Knowledge sharing and stimulating collaboration between health care professionals in European Reference Networks (ERN) is the aim of the ERN Exchange Programme 2021-2022, funded by the European Commission.
In the coming two years, three editions of exchanges will take place.
The first edition will start in March 2021. Ecorys Ltd will support all European Reference Networks with the design and logistics of the Exchange Programme of the European Commission.
The exchange programme is meant to meet goals and strengthen capacity on the network level. It is not meant for research nor for individual development (though this may be a secondary effect of the exchange programme). The thematic scope includes medical practice and skills but also organisational aspects of a network. These goals and priorities include:
The exchange visits will be organised in 3 editions, from March-July 2021, September 2021-February 2022 and March-July 2022.
All applications will be evaluated by a scientific & medical committee, named by the coordinating committee. The proposals will be evaluated on the soundness of the added value for the trainee and the host in the field of rare eye diseases.
Ecorys will organise and manage travel arrangements, and provide administrative support for travels, including the provision of tickets, travel insurance and an information kit. Beneficiaries (visitors) will receive an allowance of 200 euro per working day at destination to cover costs of accommodation, food and local transport. Weekend days are not included. Visitors are expected to book their accommodation. Allowances will be wired as lump sum on the first day of the exchange visit, upon confirmation of arrival by the hosting HCP.
If awarded, the trainee engages himself/herself to produce a short report (2 pages) on his/her activities during the exchange program 3 months after his/her return and to present the matter of the exchange briefly during an ERN-EYE meeting if required.
