Transferable skills training
In addition to interdisciplinary research training provided by involved labs, fellows also benefit from a well-balanced training programme focused on transferable skills. Workshop topics include open science initiatives (i.e. publishing in open access journals, the principles of FAIR, management/repository of big data), career development, gender and diversity, research integrity/ethics, intellectual property and entrepreneurship. EIPODs complete 2 additional trainings of their choice based upon individual needs and interests. The electives may come from, but are not limited to, a number of track-specific training opportunities available to them. Fellows may also choose their electives from EMBL's Professional Training and Development, Scientific Skills training programmes and/or other tracks.
