  5. To set-up individual mobility schemes for researchers and innovators from the HOOKVAC consortium (EU/US/ based institutes) working in research and innovation to move from the Europe cluster to India. The individual mobility schemes will be an integral component of the cluster-to-cluster partnerships.
  6. To support and encourage visibility, mutual understanding and awareness for low-cost vaccine development for neglected tropical diseases via meetings and workshops.
