What is it European Training Network (ITN)?

Research and Innovation Staff Exchange Scheme (RISE) What is it? A European Training Network (ETN) is a consortium that sets up a joint research and training programme for researchers at doctoral level. The researchers receive research and innovation training and are hired for periods from 3 to 36 months, ideally with the goal of completing their PhD thesis. Exchanges between the partners are usual, especially to the private sector. The ETN is expected to have a structuring effect on research and doctoral training in Europe that endures beyond the life of the project.
