EU grant awarded for Innovative Training Network
We are thrilled to announce that the European Training Network „Encompassing Training in fUnctional Disorders across Europe (ETUDE)“ will be funded under the EU Horizon2020 programme (https://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/news/ITN-2020-call-results).
The goal of this research and training programme, which is rooted within the EURONET-SOMA Group, is to train a new generation of early stage researchers focused on the major medical problem of Functional Disorders.
Under the lead of the programme coordinator, Judith Rosmalen, we are currently building the ETUDE graduate school, which will boost hands-on experiences across interdisciplinary, international, and intersectoral borders. We are confident that it will make substantial contributions to identifying underlying mechanisms, improve diagnosis and treatment, and reduce stigma of these highly burdened patients.
