The ERA SHUTTLE project will set up temporary placements of research and innovation talents between academic and non-academic partners. These placements will promote collaboration across different sectors and help circulate talent. The secondments will be customised to meet the participants’ specific needs, focusing on improving their transferable, entrepreneurial, and research skills. The project will include capacity building activities such as training and workshops to support R&I development in the ERA and Widening countries. These activities will be monitored and evaluated to ensure they contribute to the project’s overall goals and align with the strategic objectives of the Horizon 2020 programme.
