The objectives of the project are the following

  • To promote networking, good practice in research on musculoskeletal regenerative medicine; to stimulate dialogue for  post graduate education and training practices to develop innovative diagnostic and therapeutical tools
  • To identify and raise awareness on the key framework issues (particularly in multidisciplinary studies) of cross-border research collaboration and knowledge transfer in EU countries
  • To provide practical support for research collaboration and for long distance learning by webinars and teaching modules part of PhD education programmes through creating and running a web portal which allows identifying cross-border collaboration aspects, legal frameworks and good practice.
  • To improve language and social skills and competences, organisational skills and competences.

Target groups of the project are students, scholars, researchers and medical doctors in musculoskeletal regenerative medicine field. The project will increase transnational communication in higher education institutions involved in innovative research and education on musculoskeletal regenerative medicine in Europe.

The Final beneficiaries comprise: any research based organisations and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and individuals potentially participating in cross border research collaboration projects or research staff exchange, including HEIs and, enterprises (Industry).

The project will increase the public awareness and support of industry and governmental bodies towards the needs of Innovative research to develop methodologies to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal diseases.
