Here we offer glimpses of the training in Fibrenet. The courses and events presented are part of the common PhD training, that is available to all our PhD students. Each PhD fellow also has her/his own study plan. 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


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.
