Visitor Programme

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

The Visitor Programme is a flexible scheme designed to support knowledge exchange between two organisations, at least one of which should be a Core or Associate Partner (but can involve a third party). Personnel at all levels will be able to utilise funds within our budget for conducting work to promote knowledge exchange in a partner of their choice.

Applying for Visits

Potential visitors should contact their preferred host institute in the first instance to ensure that the work is suitable and they are able to participate.

Then the visitor should apply through the online form below. The visits can be of any duration between one week and six months, up to a maximum of €8,000. Applicants will need to provide a proposal of not less than one page and including the estimated costs. Eligible costs will include contributions to travel and subsistence.

The proposal should include:
  • A description of the proposed work (as outlined above)
  • An estimate of the anticipated HPC requirements and how they would be used (if required)
  • Justification of the chosen host institute
  • A proposal of the costs involved

Following the application, the proposal will be reviewed by the selection committee, subject to the following criteria

  • Alignment of the proposal with the strategic goals of CompBioMed
  • Quality of the project proposal
  • Potential impact of the project
