Training

Here we offer glimpses of the training in Fibrenet.

Each of our PhD fellows also has her/his own tailored study plan. The courses and events presented here are part of the common PhD training, that is available to all our PhD students.

Some of the courses, as well as some of our events, are also open to externals. If you find something interesting, please contact us at info@fibrenet.eu.

 

Network-wide training events

We will offer training in 6 network-wide training events. In these events, we will be offering training both on topics directly related to bio-based fibre research and on transferable skills topics. All except for the first event will be at least partly open to participants outside our consortium.
