  • to promote the mobility of students and researchers between partner organisations;
  • to encourage the sharing of research infrastructure;
  • to increase the number of collaborative projects;
  • to increase the visibility of partner organisations in the region;
  • to maximize the impact on the industrial growth in the region;
