Network wide BIOPOL-training

Combined cross-disciplinary ERC-excellence in one joint training program.

Orthoptics training at the University of Sheffield.

The European Research Council is currently providing funding to seven individual participants of BIOPOL formally recognising their excellent research.

Thus BIOPOL brings together ERC-researchers across Europe (UK, France, Germany, Switzerland) in one joint training program for early stage researchers. BIOPOL further comprises additional top-scientists leading in their field as well as innovative companies.

This combined expertise allows BIOPOL to provide a highly innovative training program in state-of-the-art techniques and research projects.

Experimental network-wide training stations

In addition to individual research projects BIOPOL provides network-wide experimental training by establishment of seven training stations reflecting the expertise of the consortium and performed at the principal investigators laboratories.

These training stations can be combined in a modular manner to design a fellow specific experimental training. The training stations cover different disciplines (Cell Biology, Physics, Engineering).
