Marie Curie Fellows

Overview of DECIDE Training Initiatives

We aim to develop a cohort of Europe’s best young researchers to be, first and foremost, purposeful thinkers who aspire to solve a major scientific problem who will then translate this new understanding into solutions to un-met medical needs.

The combined effort of university, research institute, and company scientists is central to our two overarching training aims. First, is to ensure that finished Early Stage Researchers are highly skilled analytical scientists - proficient in a variety of technologies and able to cross scientific disciplines. Second, is to ensure that Early Stage Researchers acquire entrepreneurial aspirations coupled to the skills required to work across academia and industry and forge valuable links. Sustainability of this vision is also a focus.
