Because the exposome is a novel field of research, important emphasis within Exposome-NL is aimed at training of the next generation of young scientists, that will be able to take full advantage of the expertises available in this research field. For this reason Exposome-NL will offer its PhD students and postdocs a mandatory interuniversity Education Programme as from 2022. The Education Programme includes the Exposome-NL Retreat, Practical Training Days and the Exposome-NL Exchange Grant.
The Exposome-NL Practical Training Days take place twice a year. It's a one or two-day training on a specific topic, each time hosted and organised by a different partner institute.
The Exposome-NL Retreat will take place once a year and will be combined with the Exposome-NL conference or Community Day. It's a day full of opportunities to interact and to exchange knowledge.
The Exposome-NL Exchange Grant is a grant for PhD students and postdocs to visit a research group in the Netherlands or abroad. The aim of the grant is to promote the opportunity of shared projects within Exposome-NL, and to give PhD students and postdocs the opportunity to get relevant experience in other research groups.
Exposome-NL is a Dutch consortium of over fifty scientists from different disciplines, universities and medical centres. Together the scientists will systematically sequence the environmental factors influencing our health.Read More
