The SOLARNET Mobility of Young Researchers Programme aims to contribute to the professional development of researchers at the first steps of their careers, by offering short stays (up to 3 months) preferably at one of the SOLARNET member institutions, public or private entities.Other host institutions from anywhere are also considered, as far as they are aligned with the scientific interests and objectives of this European initiative. This Programme is promoting the integration of this new generation of researchers into the European solar physics community with long-lasting effects.
