As part of the ICBP SURVMARK-2 project, several mechanisms will be implemented to encourage expertise transfer.
Applications will be reviewed by the ICBP SURVMARK-2 Central Team and confirmed by the ICBP programme board. The number of fellowships is limited by the available funding.
Collaborations with researchers having their own fellowships or other funding for a research visit are also welcome. Participation in both schemes is subject to strict confidentiality policies. Beneficiaries of any expertise transfer scheme must follow the general IARC rules and sign a confidentiality agreement covering data use.
Outputs of the ICPB SURVMARK-2 project and their impact will be highlighted during international summits and conferences in order to exchange information with interested researchers and policy-makers.
