NordForsk: Nordic EMBL Partnership Hub

The Nordic EMBL Partnership was awarded funding from NordForsk as part of its Partnership Hub Infrastructure call. The funding is designed to help increase knowledge transfer and interactions across the Nordic EMBL Partnership. A large part of the funding will go towards training our researchers and assisting with encouraging mobility, in the form of lab visits and knowledge sharing, across the nodes. 

The Nordic EMBL Partnership nodes have planned a number of courses to help meet these knowledge transfer and mobility needs. An overview of the courses offered through the hub agreement are detailed below. The Partnership nodes have also worked to open up courses offered by their host universities to other researchers within the Nordic EMBL Partnership.
