The broad range of national experience held by HBM4EU partners will contribute a diversity of skills and solid expertise to training and capacity activities. We will generate added value in terms of increased scientific excellence, through an exchange of expertise, including training to promote the use of common methods and protocols. In this way, the HBM4EU will promote the adoption of best practice in HBM activities across Europe.

The HBM4EU training programme includes both basic courses, targeted courses, workshops, and train-the-trainer sessions, as well as capacity building for PhD students. The programme is being developed on the basis of a survey of needs of HBM4EU partners, matched against available training capacities and is intended to serve the HBM4EU partners. Certain events may be made open to external participants, on the basis of availability.

Up coming HBM4EU trainings

Workshop on ‘ Obtaining health information for HBM studies from different sources

An online training workshop on ‘ Obtaining health information for HBM studies from different sources’ organised by HBM4EU partners will take place on the 4-5 October 2021 (afternoon sessions from 13:00 – 17:00 CET). Registration is now open by clicking here.

The training, led by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) and the School of Medicine Center of Biomedical Research (CIBM) University of Granada ((UGR, Spain) falls under WP11 –  Linking HBM, health surveys and registers and WP 14 – Effect biomarkers.

It focuses on different ways to obtain additional health information for a HBM study through combining it to the existing health survey, including collection and analysis of effect biomarkers, and possibilities to link HBM studies to administrative health registers/routine health data collections.

You will learn:

  • how health information can be obtained for HBM studies
  • what are effect biomarkers and how they could be obtained and used in HBM studies
