Overview STACCATO Training Plan

STACCATO will provide 11 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) with unique multidisciplinary scientific training by teaching them essential theory as well as developing the practical skills required to prosper in a biopharmaceutical manufacturing research environment based in either industry or academia. All ESRs will be enroled in a structured PhD programme of one of our academic partners and have their individual research project.

STACCATO’s modular training programme is designed to complement the local PhD training and will help ESRs build industry relevant skills and practical competencies. The industry focused training will be complemented by BioPharma Focus events that provide a deep understanding of the challenges associated with producing different biopharmaceuticals. Scientific training modules will also build key skills and include a workshop on single cell sequencing open to all young European researchers. To position STACCATO ESRs to become future EU scientific leaders, transferable skills training modules include IP management and a Biotech Pitching Event.
