Train2Move logoThe Università degli Studi di Torino (UNITO), Italy, launched a new mobility fellowship programme cofounded by the Marie Curie Actions under the FP7 – COFUND programme “2020 researchers : Train 2 Move (T2M)”.

T2M aims to attract outstanding post doc researchers to work in the UNITO for a period of 24 months. It offers the opportunity to carry out a research project at one of 27 hosting departments of the University and to attend a unique soft skills training. This experience will contribute to the development of personal transferable skills of awarded fellows and will train them for developing careers in academic and non-academic sectors.
