Obligations Host and Co-host Supervisors

The Host Supervisor is a senior researcher employed at the Host Institution, and takes on the primary responsibility of the fellow’s stay and integration into the local environment. The Host Supervisor provides guidance on scientific matters in his/her discipline, including challenging the fellow’s academic work to inspire excellence in the research achievements, and counselling on career perspectives.

The Co-host Supervisor assists the Host Supervisor in supervision of the fellow, and will be a senior researcher employed at the Co-Host Institution. The Co-host Supervisor advises the fellow on scientific matters in his/her discipline and takes on the responsibility of the fellow’s research stays and integration at the Co-host Institution.

The Host Supervisor and Co-host Supervisor supervise the fellow through regular meetings with the fellow (at least quarterly) and commenting on his/her Personal Career Development Plan. They provide relevant network contacts for additional collaborations, whenever relevant.

During secondments and other visits, the fellows have access to the research infrastructure and innovation environments of the Co-host Institution, including support measures for developing careers as an entrepreneur or for promoting entrepreneurial skills.
