EchoGRID Researcher Exchange Programme was opened to D3 unit projects from April 2008.

The consortium implemented a specific mobility programme which aimed at encouraging researchers (staff) to visit, for a given period, research teams between Europe and China.

The objective of the Staff Exchange or Researcher Exchange Programme was to allow visits or research stays of a researcher, between EchoGRID partners or from one EchoGRID partner to another D3 unit project, for a period ranging from two to ten weeks. The exchange of researchers between the EchoGRID organisations was certainly one of the most effective ways to achieve long term cooperation.
