Visitor Programme

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 visitor programme, formally called the Innovation Exchange programme, which 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.

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). There are two ways to find a visit partner:

HPC Europa3 Transnational Access Scheme

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.

HPC-Europa3 offers:

  • access to world-class HPC systems to academic and industrial researchers
  • scientific collaboration with host researchers in any field
  • technical support by the HPC centres
  • travel and living expenses reimbursed

The deadlines for 2019 for application to this scheme are:
– Call #8 – 14 May 2019 at 23:59
– Call #9 – 19 September 2019 at 23:59
– Call #10 – 20 November 2019 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.
