Courses are organized to form an intersectorial training environment and to provide ESRs with a common language for the emerging field of “Protein structural dynamics”.

Training elements:

  • World-class laboratories recognised for pioneering innovative approaches to science.
  • PIs with a strong teaching commitment and experience in Marie-Curie training.
  • Specialised training courses including complementary skills.
  • Training officer who will organize the training events; monitor the progress of the training; coordinate specialist training events and public outreach.
  • Intersectorial training via private sector network partner.
  • Joint experiments at European and International user facilities.
  • Extensive secondments that strengthen the connections across the network.

Upcoming Trainings

Novel methods in XFEL-based structural biology

Introduction to cross-correlation scattering on biomolecules in solution and ptychographic crystallography of 2D membrane protein crystals.

Lead Institution Paul Scherrer Institute

Conference on Protein Conformational Dynamics

An open international workshop highlighting the scientific breakthroughs of the consortium, which places the work in a broader scientific context. Presentation slots will be reserved for selected ESRs.

Lead Institution University of Gothenburg

Past Trainings

September 22 2017
Proposal writing workshop

Proposal writing is clearly an important skill in academia, but it is equally important for entrepreneurs needing to attract funding for start-up companies. The ESRs will be given training to write a beamtime proposals and the best proposal will be awarded beamtime at FemtoMAX.
