Certosa di Pontignano (Siena, Italy)

April 27 - April 30, 2016


The aim of the school is to expose students to important methods for selecting, engineering, and applying enzyme modules to multi-step enzymatic processes in vitro. In addition to intensifying trans-national personal contacts, the school will foster an action-wide dissemination of advanced skills and introduce students to a global overview of the different research fields and state-of-the-art methodology within the action.

The maximum number that can be considered per research group will be 2 students, as far as budget limitations may allow this. Additionally, extra students may be acceptable without financial COST support, e.g. to be paid from a research grant, up to the space limitations of the site.

Early Stage Researchers (PhD and young postdoctoral students) from COST Member Countries (or Associate Country) are eligible to the Training Program.

Applications must be filed using the form attached and accompanied by a short academic CV and a motivation letter by the applicant (max 1 page each, PDF only!).

Due to budget and space limitations early applications are strongly recommended (1st come, 1st served). Deadline is February 28th, 2016.
