Turku BioImaging team is participating in Executive Masters in Management of Research Infrastructures in Milan

The first-ever call for applications for the recently launched Executive Masters in Management of Research Infrastructures (RI) received 115 applications, Turku BioImaging being one of them. TBI team was successfully selected to take part in this new program where TBI is representing Finnish Euro-BioImaging (EuBI) Hub.

RItrain, the Research Infrastructure Training Programme, is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project aimed at improving and professionalizing the training of managerial and leadership staff in research infrastructures (RIs). This is vital for the future success of Europe because access to excellent RIs underpins today’s research and innovation.

RItrain is coordinated by a consortium comprising RIs and Universities:  BBMRI-ERIC, EMBL-EBI (representing ELIXIR), ECRIN, EATRIS, Infrafrontier, Euro-Bioimaging, CNRS (representing DARIAH), SHARE-ERIC, Medical University of Wien, Imperial College London, University of Minho, and the University of Milano-Bicocca. The Consortium represents, in particular, the biomedical domain, furthermore the human and social sciences.

Offering a mix of face-to-face and online modules, the Master’s programme is tailored towards the needs of busy executives looking to acquire additional skills and competencies required to successfully manage research infrastructures. The idea is to train the new generation of executives of national and international research infrastructures, equipping them with state-of-the-art managerial and leadership skills tailored to the needs of scientific service providers.

The second module from 8-10th of November in a one-minute video can be found here.
