Fibrenet has so far offered several network-wide training events with carefully tailored training contents and intensive courses both online and at participating universitites on different Fibrenet-related topics. We have also identified useful conferences and fairs and collected interesting webinars on Fibrenet substance topics and on transveral skills topics. Here are some glimpses of these offerings. Each of our PhD fellows also has her/his own tailored study plan. The courses and events presented here are part of the complementary training common for all our ESRs.


Network-wide training events

We will offer training in 7 network-wide training events. In these events, we will be offering training both on topics directly related to bio-based fibre research and on transversal skills topics. All except for the first event will be at least partly open to participants outside our consortium.
