Consortium

An international and multidisciplinary network made up of 7 universities, 3 research centres and 7 companies.

SPEAR brings together an international and multidisciplinary network made up of 7 universities, 3 research centres and 7 small and medium sized companies, which will provide state-of-the-art training for fifteen early-stage researchers (ESR) in the field of fundamental and applied Spin Orbitronics.

Of these, three universities, three research institutes and three SMEs are project beneficiaries who will recruit and train the early-stage researchers. The remaining four SMEs and four universities are project partners, who will act as host organisations during secondments, provide additional training, or act as registering universities for the ESR.

Beneficiaries

SPEAR’s 9 beneficiaries will recruit and train 15 early-stage researchers.
