The intention of the collaboration is to facilitate scientific exchange between scientists working at Feinstein Institute and scientists working at KI in the CMM building. The collaboration will be based on the development of joint projects, as well as joint funding, which may be directed to the Feinstein Institute as well as to KI for research within the CMM building.
The parties therefore intend to:
• Develop joint exchange programs for scientists and PhD students;
• Enable development of joint research programs; and,
• Develop jointly organized scientific meetings as well as events that will foster interactions between science and society in a broad sense.
