Training for research staff


Researchers are a key resource for research and innovation, and contribute in the broadest and most comprehensive sense to the growth of society.

Training the university research staff is essential to promote the quality of research, the updating of skills and the adaptation to ever changing challenges. On the one hand, transversal training contributes to keeping abreast with the latest academic and technological trends, fostering academic excellence, and on the other hand, it promotes the professional growth of the research staff.
