The European network

for cell migration studies

Online training material


Training components at the network level include the following:

  • co-supervision and mentoring
  • a structured set of obligatory training elements,
  • active involvement of participating students in organisational tasks, communication and dissemination,
  • Europe-wide and cross-sectoral networking,
  • emphasis on complementary training to improve communicational, entrepreneurial and business skills,
  • reciprocal integration of experimentation and modelling in biology.


Local training programmes

Available to the participating students for optional training in additional scientific, complementary and entrepreneurial skills.

Local training is offered the following institutions:


  • Center for Doctoral Studies at RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany
  • Aachen Institute for Advanced Study in Computational Engineering Science at Uniklinik RWTH Aachen, Germany
  • Helmholtz Research School at Forschungszentrum Jülich, Jülich, Germany
