Training Schools within the framework of the Action topic are aimed at:
- Widening the knowledge of the Action activities
- Providing intensive training on a new and emerging subject
- Offering familiarisation with unique equipment or know how in one of the laboratories of the Action
Training Schools are not intended to provide general training or education. Those attending a Training School are typically – but not exclusively – young researchers from across Europe.
Furthermore, Training Schools may also cover appropriate re-training as part of life-long learning.
A Training School can also take the form of an Early Stage Researchers (less than PhD + 8 years) network created as a "think tank".
COST support covers organisation of the school and participation support to both trainers (including external experts) and trainees.
A next generation sequencing (NGS) data analysis training school took place in 1-3 September 2014 in Leiden (Netherlands). A functional genomics training school will take place in July 2016 in Seville (Spain). If interested, please write to sbel(ELIMINAR)@clinic.ub.es.
