Transferable skills

As highlighted in the European Charter of Researchers training in non-research oriented skills is essential to develop abilities that make researchers more valuable in the job market, expanding their career opportunities also in non-academic sectors.
Transferable skills include science communication, grant writing, Intellectual Property Rights, entrepreneurship, leadership, research integrity, and many more.

Within iCARE-2 program a dedicated budget (€ 1800/year) is transferred to the Hosting Institution and must be used for meetings and/or training events.

Publicly available training events on transferable skills as well as relevant tools will be advertised in this page: check it regularly!
