MiNEMA Exchange Programme for Researchers.
The MiNEMA project supports the exchange of researchers between European research labs that are leading in the areas related to middleware for network eccentric and mobile applications.

Researchers who want to apply for the exchange program can submit a formal request to the MiNEMA steering committee. Please read the calendar, required documentation and on-line forms.

Application will be evaluated according to their intrinsic merit and to the general ESF guidelines. In face of equivalent proposals according to the previous criteria, preference will be given to MiNEMA members (see how to become a member).

See our links page with useful information about groups and ongoing projects related to MiNEMA!!!


MiNEMA PhD Student Thematic Workshops.

This novel and promising mechanism fosters further collaboration among different research groups working on MiNEMA related topics. It consists of a set coordinated Short Visit Grants that allow a small number of students to pave the way for collaborative work on a common topic. Each workshop is structured as a series of activities that should lead to a common research plan.
Submit your proposal to the MiNEMA Programme Coordinator acording to the MiNEMA PhD Students Thematic Workshops Guidelines
Submission deadline: The submission of proposals for evaluation is closed. Please submit preliminary proposals to be open until the next submission deadline.


Open proposals:
We have already received some proposals which will be submited in the next submission deadline (to be announced). Until then, the current participants are receptive to allow other PhD students to join them.
The open proposals are listed next and if you want to join any of them, please contact the MiNEMA Programme Coordinator indicating the project(s) you are interested to and the place you are currently working:


Proposals under evaluation:
The next proposals were submited to MiNEMA and are considered as closed, therefore, no proposals to join them will be accepted.


Accepted workshops:
The next workshops where evaluated by the MiNEMA Steering Committee and accepted.
After the acceptance notification each member must formalize the registration submiting a short visit grant application in pdf format containing:
(i) Personal information
(ii) The final MiNEMA Student Workshop proposal, the full contact of the host including email address and the proposed starting date of your visit (this will be the same for all the members of each workshop)
(iii) The estimated travel costs (estimated individually)
