The general idea of the MOSaIC ERA Chairs project is to enhance research and organizational performance of the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Warsaw (IIMCB). The role of the ERA Chairs Group Leader in this process is to complement and strengthen the current research lines at IIMCB and to influence structural changes for responsible research and effective science management.

The MOSaIC has 5 objectives. The 1st is recruitment of an ERA Chairs Group Leader and affiliates in an open process that involves a set of incentives for the successful candidate to establish an excellent research group. The 2nd is to augment scientific research and innovation in IIMCB and surrounding region through the work of the ERA Chair Group Leader in molecular signaling, a field with great promise for medical advancement. The 3rd and 4th involve structural improvements in science management and consolidated HR activities to develop a research environment that meets the highest international standards, including those set in the EU Charter and Code. Dissemination and communication activities will enable us to achieve the fifth objective: widespread recognition of the MOSaIC and IIMCB among national and European stakeholders.

Thanks to the MOSaIC, IIMCB scientists will lead innovative and internationally competitive research in an environment of excellent organizational standards and support. They will engage in European partnerships, and their projects will lead to practical inventions.
