Since the launch of the ENTENTE Project in September 2012, four separate calls of the ENTENTE Professional Exchange Programme have been made thanks to our network of 24 dedicated hosting organisations who have each accepted at least one and up to seven of the highest scoring laureates on exchanges into their offices, for a total of 37 laureates selected based on their evaluations by the selection committee according to the published criteria. The 37 laureates were selected from among a pool of more than 129 eligible applications coming from 83 technology transfer offices based in 22 countries!
As the fourth and final call comes to an end, the ENTENTE Selection Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all the candidates for their participation and interest in the ENTENTE Professional Exchange Programme.
None of this could have been fulfilled without the precious contribution and support of the Hosting Organisations and Advisory Board members throughout the ENTENTE Project, who shared their knowledge with the community as well as the opportunity to undertake exchanges in their organizations.
A special Thanks is also addressed to the B.BICE+ Consortium and more specifically to the IRD for their involvement into settling a partnership agreement promoting Europe-Brazil cooperation.
The ENTENTE Selection Committee and Consortium as a whole is grateful to all of you in for your contributions to this successful project.
