Training & E-Learning

Aside from optional secondments at partner sites and the pairing with a senior scientist from the consortium as a mentor for the duration of the project, each A-TANGO early career scientist (ECS) will fill out and maintain a personal training portfolio that specifies individual training needs and goals, suggestions for Masterclass topics, and selecting a mentor (senior scientist from the consortium or its Advisory Boards). Every year during the annual general assembly (GA) meeting, A-TANGO will organise an ECS-dedicated programme, including Masterclasses and a mentor-mentee session. In addition, a frequent ECS-only journal-club-style seminar series will be organised. Dr. Annarein Kerbert (LUMC) has been elected as ECS speaker.
