Q: What is "secondment" in ITN? (All Calls)
A: In ITN the term "secondment" is applied to researchers under initial training and it means a period spent by a fellow at the premises of a beneficiary or Associated Partner other than those of the beneficiary which has appointed him/her under the project (the appointing beneficiary). The fellow remains employed and paid by the appointing beneficiary. Other beneficiaries and associated partners can host fellows for secondment for a duration of up to 30% of their entire recruitment period. Please note that any institution hosting a secondment should be a member of the consortium as either a full beneficiary or associated partner. The secondment duration must be sufficiently long to allow the fellow to fully benefit from the research training and transfer of knowledge activities. Typically the shortest effective secondment duration is several weeks.
