HBP EDUCATION OVERVIEW
The HBP Education Programme offers innovative learning packages for early career researchers working in and across the fields of neuroscience, information and communications technology (ICT) and medicine. The programme especially targets advanced master‘s-level and PhD students, as well as early post-doctoral researchers, from within and outside the HBP.
The HBP Curriculum on Interdisciplinary Brain Science combines web-based distance learning courses and complementary face-to-face workshops. It provides basic lessons in the HBP core fields neuroscience, medicine and ICT for early career researchers outside their area of specialisation, as well as courses on the subjects of ethics and intellectual property rights, translation and exploitation of research.
HBP Schools are five-day courses that provide more advanced lectures and tutorials. This format focuses on specific questions and challenges from a transdisciplinary point of view, to help break down barriers between different disciplines.
An annual HBP Student Conference, organised by early career researchers for early career researchers, aims to encourage collaboration and scientific exchange across the fields of neuroscience, brain medicine and computer science. At the conference, early career researchers get the chance to present their own research and engage in extensive discussions with peers and principle investigators from within and outside the HBP.
Young Researchers Events provide a setting for the HBP Research Infrastructure to present the Project’s tools and results to early career scientists and future users. In addition, more specific Infrastructure User Training Events provide hands-on training in the use of the various services and tools offered by the HBP.
Video material from all HBP Education Programme activities is collected and made available to the public via the HBP Education Programme E-library.
