Expertise Exchange and Twinning Activities aiming to provide opportunities to the researchers of the UPAT SEE-DRUG, to meet experts in the fields of Chemical, Structural Biology and Pharmacology and to visit EU Center of Excellence (Partnering Organizations, PO). Two sided visits (incoming & outgoing visits) of each participant or members of the groups are planned for expertise exchange, and transfer of knowledge. Emphasis is given to the active involvement of s many as possible participants of SEE-DRUG consortium, involving thus a significant number of experienced researchers. This action will facilitate the transfer of knowledge and best practices to UPAT. Experienced researchers from EU Centers of Excellence that will collaborate with the SEE-DRUG groups, as Partnering Organizations, will participate in the External Advisory Board of the project and will participate in networking/twinning activities (see above Chart).

Incoming Visits

Experienced researchers from the 8 Partnering Organizations, will be involved in twinning activities for scientific research purposes and for transfer of knowledge in the areas covered by SEE-DRUG.

Outgoing Visits

SEE-DRUG participants and/or members of their groups will spent some weeks in one of the EU Experts Lab/Institutes/Centers (see above Chart), over the 36 months duration of the SEE-DRUG.
