EUROImpact multi-sectoral training programme for European researchers

Categories: Education.

Each of the fellows is given a three-year post at a leading research institution in a country other than their home country, a full training programme, a set of research objectives using data from the network of European partners. During their three-year fellowship they are seconded to another country for a period of six months to work on a local dataset. 

Several of the EUROImpact early stage research fellows were invited to speak at the EAPC research seminar in Ghent, Belgium this year. The seminar was an excellent showcase for these emerging researchers. Researchers speaking at the seminar included:

  • Barbara Antunes – a Portugese Psychologist, hosted by the Cicely Saunders Institute at King’s College London and seconded to the Norwegian University of Science and Technology
  • Natalie Evans – an anthropologist with a background in biomedical sciences, hosted by the Free University Medical Centre, Amsterdam, seconded to the National Cancer Research Institute in Italy
  • Winnie Ko – originally from Hong Kong, and hosted by the National Cancer Research Institute Italy, exchanging to the Free University Brussels 
  • Lara Pivodic – an Austrian clinical psychologist hosted by the Free University of Brussels and seconded to the Cicely Saunders Institute at King’s College London
  • David Blum – a Swiss doctor hosted by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and seconded to the Cicely Saunders Institute at King’s College London
