18TH - 29TH SEPTEMBER 2017

This is a very intensive 2-week interdisciplinary and integrated training course that directly follows on from the start-of-project meeting. It is designed to provide all ESRs with a firm grounding in the basic skills and knowledge needed for cutting-edge research in developmental cognitive neuroscience. The ‘boot camp’ concentrates a great deal of training into the beginning phase of the ESRs’ projects. This will give ESRs a major advantage in advancing their research, and also will minimise potential conflicts between the need for a comprehensive, multi-methodology training programme and the EID requirement that ESRs split their 36-month PhD equally between the academic and non-academic partners. It will also serve to encourage closer scientific and social links between ESRs at the beginning of their training period, ones that should further develop over the course of their PhDs.
