Training Schools can help COST Actions to share knowledge and support collaboration. Dissemination is a key component of the Action, together with our Patient advocates and the training of researchers. Training Schools can be organized on related research topics and can provide dissemination opportunities for the Action’s activities or provide training in research topics within the laboratories involved in the COST LOBSTERPOT Action. Participants are mainly, but not exclusively, young researchers and Ph.D. students, involved in COST Actions.
Examples of training schools can be in the form of Public Webinars or online Q&A’s together with patients and our Patient advocates. Training schools may as well be full-fledged training programs organized by a WG member in how to handle organotypic cultures, microscopic imaging, or handling large scale high-throughput Omics datasets.
