This morning, Finnova’s Brussels offices were honored to welcome a delegation from Rovira i Virgili University (URV) of Spain. The visit has taken place to explore an exciting collaboration in the framework of the Horizon Europe Call, specifically within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA). Rovira i Virgili University is leading the EDGE project, an MSCA Doctoral Network focused on the employability of researchers and PhDs, in which Finnova participates as a PARTNER ENTITY.
The EDGE project, led by the same university, has as its main focus the employability of researchers and doctors, and has the participation of several partner entities, including Finnova. As an associated entity, Finnova will be in charge of supervising, hosting and providing training in its facilities to the research personnel.
During the visit, several key topics were discussed, including:
- The University’s interest in learning about Finnova’s facilities in Brussels, as well as the conditions under which doctoral students would work at this location. The delegation was impressed by Finnova’s facilities to host and support young researchers in a high-level environment.
- They took the opportunity to discuss the mobility and training programs offered by Finnova both in Tarragona and the rest of Spain.
- Finnova detailed its commitment to the EDGE project, which includes communication activities, the organization of a second project event for follow-up and networking, as well as the possibility of providing training workshops.
This visit marks an important step towards the consolidation of the collaboration between Finnova and Rovira i Virgili University in the EDGE project. Both parties hope to contribute to the development of researchers and the promotion of their employability.
Finnova is a Brussels-based organization dedicated to promoting innovation, research and investment in Europe. Its commitment to collaboration and training of young researchers fits perfectly with the EDGE project and its employability objectives.
