EMBRIC have recently announced their fourth training call, the aim of which is to provide organising parties of training opportunities an extra incentive and financial support to organise, host and participate in knowledge exchange, best practice and technology transfer in marine biotechnology & aquaculture innovation.
Training of both potential users and in-house technical and administrative staff of service providers is an integral part of the activity of each of the Research Infrastructures (RIs) involved in EMBRIC (European Marine Biological Research Infrastructure Cluster). Consequently, exchange of personnel and training of staff became a primary task in Work Package 9 (WP9) of the EMBRIC project. Promoting knowledge and best practice exchange to strengthen human capital in the cluster is key to the EMBRIC project. Therefore, spreading good practice, consultancy and training in an integrated marine biotechnology and mariculture workflow will increase the value chain of the EMBRIC pipelines.
In this framework, dedicated training activities (e.g. workshops, courses, knowledge exchange and technology transfer meetings) will be set up and become part of the EMBRIC integrated training programme. The main goal of this training programme is to harmonise practices and standardise procedures in the blue biotechnology & aquaculture domain for academia and industry during and beyond the formal end of the project.
