Q: Is the involvement of commercial (private) sector important in multi-site ITNs? (All Calls)
A: Yes. The ITN action aims to add to the intersectoral and transnational employability of the recruited researchers, and the involvement of organisations from different sectors is therefore essential. Commercial (private) sector participation in multi-site ITN is defined at two levels: 1. Full partner; 2. Associated partner. The involvement of the commercial sector should be at the highest possible level, taking into account the nature of the joint training programme and the research field. The minimum level of involvement of the commercial sector would be at level 2 and must be well justified in the proposal. It is important to provide clear evidence of the commitment of the commercial sector to be involved (e.g. a letter of commitment attached within the proposal PDF file).
