24.03.2016 – EMTRAIN contributed with a competency workshop for PhD students

In the March 2016 ORPHEUS newsletter, ORPHEUS’ President Bob Harris thanks and congratulates the organisers and participants of the 2016 ORPHEUS conference “Lost in translation? From medical studies to clinical research” for a successful event. The conference was held at the Medical Faculty of the University of Cologne, Germany, on 10-12 March 2016.

The fruitful partnership with ORPHEUS has been a critical part of EMTRAIN’s PhD activities in the past. At the ORPHEUS 2016 conference, a workshop specially conceived by EMTRAIN on how competencies shape science careers introduced participating PhD students to means of preparing for careers outside academia. This workshop was hosted by Mike Hardman and Christa Janko of EMTRAIN on Friday, 11 March 2016.
