The consortium consists of 5 full-parter universities, 4 in the EU (Universities of Potsdam, DE, Groningen, NL, Trento, IT, Newcastle, GB) and one non-EU university (Macquarie, AU). The full partners have been selected on the basis of their quality and long-standing previous record of cooperation. In addition to this core consortium, there are 15 associated partners from the public and private sector with various expertise: they include
- three non-EU universities (Hong Kong, HK, Beijing Normal, CN, and Lomonosov Moscow State, RU) and the Free University of Brussels,
- four members from the private sector, two with a focus on R&D ((Advanced Neuro Technology (ANT) and Entwicklungsgruppe Klinische Neuropsychologie (EKN)), who are potential co-supervisors, and two publishers who are involved in training (Springer publishers and Psychology Press), and
- seven members of the health sector associated to the consortium who belong to the health sector and provide internships, including a rehabilitation center in Moscow, the largest centre for language impaired people in the world.
By including non-university associated members in monitoring and supporting the program, the employability of IDEALAB professionals in health rehabilitation services will be strengthened as an added value to their excellent preparation for employment in academia and specialized research labs.
