NFFA-Europe User Special Training Visits

NFFA-Europe offers Special Training periods to team members of granted proposals, who can benefit from hands-on sessions in the assigned provider’s laboratory before the scheduled access.

This opportunity is reserved for users only, one per each granted proposal.

This initiative aims to get users acquainted with the techniques and methods needed for their experiments before the actual start of the access session. The newly acquired skills will allow them to contribute with more insider knowledge to their investigations, use the time at their disposal more effectively and build future collaborations with the in-house staff.

NFFA-Europe’s focus is to make novice scientists understand the significant advantages research infrastructures offer, also as a unique resource for their career in the research field.
