1. Increase interactions between research groups with multi-disciplinary and complementary expertise.
  2. Enhance research efficiency and quality by distributing and sharing knowledge, experience and skills as well as reagents, samples and tools amongst participants and thus overcome hurdles, which currently cause that research on ROS is rather taking place in isolation.
  3. Enhance Europe’s scientific excellence by inspiring young researchers and attracting leading researchers to Europe. EU-ROS will train early career scientists in an interdisciplinary fashion with insight from academia to industry, from basic to clinical research in order to become the future leaders of the European scientific community. EU-ROS will do so by e.g. organising 5 devoted training schools, promoting staff exchange and linking into Summer School networks in SFRR-E.
  4. Promote equality by supporting female scientists, in particular between post-doc and pre-tenure.
  5. Advance scientific knowledge and use this for developing novel diagnostics and therapeutics and translating these into the clinics.
  6. Provide measurable outcomes in improved health, new products, and economic benefits by lowering disease burden, resulting in a net decrease of costs and contribute to the sustainability of EU healthcare systems.
  7. Enhance EU’s industry and biotech competitiveness.
  8. Disseminate new knowledge to the international scientific community and to the general public.
  9. Establish a well-coordinated interdisciplinary team of leading scientists applying for at least one relevant H2020 call.
