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.
