The European Center of Excellence in Computational Medicine (CompBioMed) is a focus for technology transfer between academia, healthcare and industry in the field of biomedical computing. In CompBioMed, experts in computational medicine develop simulation and analysis software using the latest techniques to solve complex multi-scale and multi-physics problems.

CompBioMed fosters a mentoring programme, the Innovation Exchange programme, promotes and monitors internships between academia, healthcare and industry in the field of biomedical computing. In this programme, experts from the research community spend time embedded within industrial organisations looking for assistance, applying the latest research techniques in their software. Likewise it assists academic software developers in adopting best practice software development tools and techniques by facilitating short internships within industrial organisations.

Our current and planned exchanges can be seen by following this link.

If you are looking for an opportunity to be involved in this type of exchange, or if you have an opportunity to offer others, please get in contact with us. These opportunities are open to both internal and external stakeholders with the only requirement being that at least one participant (visitor or host) has to be a CompBioMed Partner (Core or Associate). If you have an interest in working with one of our partners, fill in the form below and we can help to arrange this.

We have recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with HPC-Europa3 (more details on this can be found on our news page) giving us access to fund these exchanges through their Transnational Access scheme.

The upcoming deadlines for application to this scheme are:
– Call #2 – 16 November 2017 at 23:59
– Call #3 – 28 February 2018 at 23:59
– Call #4 – 17 May 2018 at 23:59
– Call #5 – 06 September 2018 at 23:59
– Call #6 – 15 November 2018 at 23:59

There are no rules on when the exchange can take place if successful, however, it normally after 4 months to allow for the arrangement of logistical matters.
