Pooling expertise for better research in life and biomaterial sciences

The Italian National Research Council (CNR) is coordinating a PhD programme, INCIPIT, in life and biomaterial sciences in southern Italy thanks to Marie Curie fellowship funding.

The programme is intended to provide a stimulating and supportive environment for 35 early-stage researchers in several fields of growing importance, including biomolecular and chemical sciences. It also aims to bolster their post-academic career opportunities.

The PhDs will cover increasingly important areas of interest for society, including developmental and stem cell biology, regenerative medicine, human disease mechanisms, cancer treatment and drug design, to name but a few.

INCIPIT aims to improve knowledge and research in these key areas, and also to boost the industrial take-up of research results in these fields, to advance health and economic growth in Europe. It will do this by prioritising close collaboration with a wide set of partners, bringing together all eight CNR research institutions to provide the PhD students with different and complementary expertise.

The training programme, includes multidisciplinary courses common to all curricula followed by subjects such as communication and management training and information on how to help transfer research results to the market. These transferable skills will be essential to achieving one of the main aims of the INCIPIT project: making its researchers more employable in their chosen fields.

CNR’s eight research institutions will be joined by three doctoral schools as well as non-profit and industrial partner organisations in the programme. This is a bid to further improve employability by offering the researchers training and secondment positions in industry.

The call for applications for the remaining 17 places will be published in January 2017.
