Transforming the way
how training is done
We will link academia, industry, and science communication
We are a multidisciplinary and intersectoral consortium which brings together experts from two research environments (basic and translational) and two sectors (academic and industrial) which will deliver a high-level scientific training to our fellows, as well as transferable skills.
We will mentor independent, innovative, and respectful scientists to drive societal change and improve health in the European society. To do so, our training programme is constructed on 3 pillars.
Our training goals
We will teach our fellows to be able to
- Reach excellence in science within the fields of DNA replication, cell fate and cancer.
- Obtain cutting-edge technical training for careers withing and outside academia.
- Develop transferable skills beyond academia to increase their employability in all sectors.
- Acquire tools for effective communication of science to the community, industry, and the general public.
- Carry science from the bench to society.
- Create an inclusive and sustainable science.
The backbone of our training programme
Forging the RepliFate community
These actions will get together all fellows and include Project Meetings and Core Courses in Scientific and Transferable Skills. They will combine
(i) Scientific training (Advanced Imaging, Cancer Mouse Models, Data Management and Entrepreneurship), (ii) Science Communication and Writing training and (iii) Communication, Patient engagement and
Strengthening the scientific skills of
Each student will be enrolled in a PhD programme and will undertake an individual research project at the host institution and in intersectoral secondments. The training will be complemented with specific actions tailored for each fellow, such as assistance to scientific meetings and training courses.
Developing skills beyond academia
We will foster the creativity and communication skills of our fellows,
as well as inclusion and collaboration. It will be achieved through
the Artist-in-Residence program, the development of a Motion Video/the managerial actions, Progress Reports and Virtual Coffee Meetings. The fellows will put into practice the acquired training through the managerial actions.
Leaving our mark
We will develop sustainable elements for doctoral programmes
Ensuring knowledge transfer
We will guarantee our results reach society
We have designed dissemination actions to spread our advances within the scientific community, relevant companies, clinicians, patients, general public, and other training programs.
These actions will included, among other, paper publications, project meetings with other networks, industry and clinical collaborations, participation in science fairs, social media dissemination and contact with patient associations.
