Level 2 Training: Local Training Programmes

More and more universities in Europe establish special training programs for graduate students. It will be ensured that the ESRs can participate in these programs. The following table gives an overview of multidisciplinary graduate programs and/or training programmes offered by ROBOCADEMY partners. For hosts without such training programs, ESRs will be able to participate in training programs at a partner university, i.e. either the university where the ESR graduates, or at co-supervisor’s host. Local training will also include (depending on the hosting institution) participation at lectures and seminars outside the direct scope of the ESR project and working in non-university environments (e.g. industry, applied maritime research institutes).

Local Scientific Training Programmes accessible to Robocademy fellows
