Satellite workshops for the development of transferable skills

Transferable skills constitute an important aspect of the training. Within this ITN, they will be implemented both at the local and at the network level. Local actions for transferable skills development will include e.g. language courses, both in the local language as well as English, if necessary, as this will be important for communication within the ITN and for the future career of the ESRs. Computing, presentation, and communication skills will be developed locally, as the ESRs will be presenting results in their local scientific environment. In addition, a structured program will be offered at the network level for the development of transferable skills. Courses in Good Scientific Practice, Scientific Writing, Biometry and Statistic will be held as satellite workshops at the retreats and mid-term summer school of the ITN.
