 Virtual Mobility Grants

Virtual Mobility grants (VM) are special grants aimed at supporting the harmonization and standardization of methods/ procedures, exchanging skills, building capacities, coordinating or preparing dissemination activities, or implementing research-related activities that do not require in-person presence.

VM will promote virtual collaboration as a complement to traditional ways of strengthening existing interactions and fostering knowledge transfer within the SEA-UNICORN network of scientists and stakeholders.
