Network-wide events

Network-wide activities play a central role in the training of our ESRs. They provide opportunities for the interactions between ESRs and senior scientists and provide advanced training on specific topics through courses and group projects. ESRs also take part in the organisation of network-wide events, in order to build organisational and management skills.

Upcoming training events

Network-wide events are open for attendance beyond the VIROINF network. If you are interested in attending, please contact the network manager.
