Annual Intensive Training Courses - Complementary Skills

click on the figure below for the full size image

IDP by NMR scheme: Annual-Intensive-Training-Course-CS These courses have been designed with the awareness that while training courses on S&T topics are generally provided to young researchers, training to develop complementary skills are offered only at few universities. This trend is however slowly changing and the most motivated students appreciate the importance of complementary training programs to boost their scientific career. The associated partner EUrelations offers a full range of training courses complementary to research since 2005. EUrelations interacts with the NC as well as with the SB to propose one course per year, according to the format schematically indicated above .
