Research centres The ASIM Partners’ research centres will be involved in the administering of the project. The research centres are university-approved research structures, and so they will be used to support the mobility participants. The centres will help participants integrate and feel part of a community within the host institutions.

Therefore, hosting Partners will arrange induction activities to the country, institution, and particular departments or research centres. There shall be an orientation for staff and students immediately after arriving and settling down on campus. This would help them settle in and have a good understanding of their host institution and nature/structure of their programs.
