Granada, SPAIN, 15th – 26th July, 2013

 

Foreword

This course introduces students to a research career in the sphere of Biomedicine and Biotechnology, taking advantage of the particular strengths of the Campus of International Excellence of the University of Granada, Spain (CEI-BioTic) as coordinating institution. The partner institutions of the programme, working alongside the University of Granada, are the University of Nottingham (United Kingdom) and the University of Bayreuth (Germany). The research companies participating are Abbott Laboratories SA, Bio-Iliberis R&D, Neuron Bio and the Fundación MEDINA. Also renowned guest lecturers from universities and research centers external to the consortium will collaborate.
Objective: To help students achieve a professional research career in the sphere of Biomedicine and Biotechnology, taking advantage of the particular strengths of the Campus of International Excellence of the University of Granada (CEI-BioTic) as coordinating institution.

Target groups: 15 students (five students from each participating university) in the final year of their degree programme, which must be related, although not necessarily exclusively, to the areas of Biomedicine and Biotechnology.
Core activities: tutoring; workshops and practical sessions in the fields of Biomedicine and Biotechnology; programmes of visits to companies operating in these fields; talks and round-table events.

Learning outcomes: it is anticipated that, as a result of this intensive programme, students will be geared towards a professional research career in Biomedicine and/or Biotechnology; they will understand the practical dimension of a scientific career (both academically and from the industry perspective); they will be aware of the professional opportunities in these scientific fields; and they will have established an initial network of contacts both in public institutions and in the industry.

Other anticipated outcomes: for teaching staff, the experience will facilitate university-industry cooperation, and will establish teaching approaches designed to motivate students towards choosing a research career. The programme will also contribute to raising awareness of the Campus of International Excellence project, of which this Intensive Programme forms a part.
