TwinntoInfect Ethics Summer School 2018

Would you like to come to Portugal and meet exceptional speakers that will cover state-of-the-art topics in Scientific Ethics?

The TwinnToInfect Scientific Ethics Summer School will take place in a coastal town near Lisbon (Costa da Caparica) on 17 – 20nd September 2018 https://www.tryplisboacaparica.com

This School is designed for PhD students and early Post-Docs working in biomedicine and related fields, particularly those whose research topics benefit a strong knowledge of Ethics.

The School will include presentations and round table discussions that will promote informal and lively debates spanning a wide range of Ethical issues faced by Biomedical researchers, ranging from Ethics in publishing, grant applications, to Ethics legislation.

The four-day course will combine lectures from invited speakers and courses on Scientific Ethics, and includes Workshops on Leadership & Entrepreneurship. This is a great opportunity to foster scientific exchanges and promote networking!

The school will host up to 30 students and early post-docs. We welcome participants from any institution, although privileged access will be given to the TwinnToInfect partner institutions: iMM Lisboa, Institut Pasteur and The Francis Crick Institute.

TwinnToInfect will support the registration fee for 10 participants from iMM, 10 from the Francis Crick Institute and 10 from Institut Pasteur.

Deadline registration: 15th August 2018.
