Goals

  • Training of human resources in key disciplines of structural biology, through high-quality courses integrated within a regional school.
  • Active support for the exchange of students and research scientists.
  • Integration of the local capacities in the region, optimizing the use of sophisticated equipment.
  • Identification of multicentric research projects in structural biology in the MERCOSUR, seeking for high impact science and biotechnology.
  • To support the various groups in structural biology emerging in the region, generating integration through training, sharing sophisticated equipment and supporting the development of projects.

 

The main goals to accomplish:

Conduct at least three short courses per year, 60 hours each, of advanced level, always pushing forward the strategy of intensive hands-on schedules, to train at least 20 students per course, from the three member countries, as well as from other countries in Latin America.

To support the mobility of at least 10 students per year in short-term exchange programs (30 days) between the member laboratories.

To support the mobility of at least 5 students per year in medium-term exchange programs (180 days) between the member laboratories.

To support the mobility of at least 5 research scientists per year in short-term exchange programs (minimum 7 – maximum 30 days).
