STRENGTHENING INDIVIDUAL AND INSTITUTIONAL CAPACITIES

WAITRO CAPACITY DEVELOPMEMENT PROGRAM

DEVELOPING CAPACITIES IN SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION

WAITRO aims at strengthening the capacities of individuals and institutions and enable its members to be more responsive to global challenges and market needs. Strengthening capacities in leadership, know-how and advocacy is indispensable for RTOs to master the ever-changing conditions of conducting research and development. Promoting strategic thinking and adaptability, as well as expanding the expertise of individuals in specific areas benefits RTOs in creating innovative technologies.

ENABLING MEMBERS TO PARTICPATE IN INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH COLLABORATIONS

CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP AT LEITAT IN BARCELONA

WAITRO will offer two Capacity Development Workshops at LEITAT in Barcelona, Spain. There will be two Workshops, one for novices – ‘Introduction into international collaborations and Horizon Europe’ and one for advanced proposal writers- Advanced Proposal Writing and Horizon Europe’ to enable WAITRO members to collaborate on international collaborative research projects. Due to the current situation, we cannot provide exact dates for the workshops yet. We are hoping to do the Workshops in September/October 2020. We will announce the concrete dates as soon as possible.

Applications are open until June 30th.

We employ participatory and collaborative learning methods to enhance competencies and abilities in our workshops. They equip participants to face future challenges and achieve their goals in thematic focus areas.

In-depth trainings focus on the acquisition of specific skills and know-how. Participants learn how to carry out specific operations und how to use new tools that will increase the efficiency of their work through hands-on sessions.

Equipping individuals to train others in their organization maximizes the benefit of WAITRO’s rich R&D expertise and empowers WAITRO members to apply skills and know-how to their local context.

Pairing two organizations for twinning activities like peer-to-peer exchange (see WAITRO Fellowship Program), coaching, mentoring and on-site visits facilitates the effective sharing of lessons learnt and best practices.
