Special emphasis is laid on the training of our Early-Stage-Researchers (ESRs). MEDIASRES aims to provide the ESRs with the breadth and depth of analytical tools and conceptual knowledge needed to rise the challenges of modern academic and industrial approaches in biostatistics. The ESRs in this Initial Training Network are trained according to an individually supervised, comprehensive and complementary program composed of the individual research projects, methodological courses offered at each partner site, face-to-face network-wide training events, online activities, close interaction with clinicians and transferable skill courses. Transnational research secondments are an essential part of Marie Curie ITNs and complete the picture.

In the event list below, Courses organised by MEDIASRES are marked with the MEDIASRES logo. Additionally, the online courses were organised and provided by MEDIASRES.
