It will also stimulate the exchange of knowledge and experience between research groups, as well as inspire further exchanges between research groups with a high international reputation. The program also aims to stimulate high quality of research and contribute to increasing the number of publications in internationally highly rated journals and stimulating research collaboration that can generate large grants.
