The VPH-CaSE project brings together partners, from academia and industry, to train the next generation of researchers that will make important contributions in their respective fields.
The core of the consortium are the Early Stage Researchers, young men and women recruited under the highest standards of the European Commission. The ESRs will develop research projects in all areas related to cardiovascular simulation and experimentation, with a particular aim in personalised medical devices. Through various training activities the ESRs will get to know each other and collaborate to boost their research and produce the best possible results.
The Project Supervisors are the senior research partners of the consortium. They are each a renowned specialist in their field, providing the best possible counsel Europe has to offer. It is them who will be guiding the ESRs in their projects.
Both researchers and supervisors are hosted in the Beneficiary institutions. These Universities and Companies are leaders in state of the art research and constitute an ideal environment for the development of each individual research project. Four of these beneficiaries will be hosting Training Activities that will give the ESRs the tools they need to become world-class researchers.
Last, but certainly not least, the consortium Partners provide valuable assistance to the Supervisory Board. These Partners also offer the possibility of secondments, so the ESRs may experience training outside of their home institution. The VPH-CaSE partners also contribute in the training activities, so the researchers in training observe how their contributions make an impact in the world.
The VPH-CaSE consortium ensures that the researchers gain experience in the three pillars of this project: academia, medical centres and industry.
