Instruct Training Courses

Listed here are training events that may be of interest to researchers in the field of structural cell Biology. Courses, workshops and meetings wholly or partly funded or hosted by Instruct are marked with the Instruct logo. Funds may be available to help young Instruct scientists to attend these events.Our education programme helps to train a cadre of European structural and cell biologists who are proficient in a raft of technologies, not just one specialism. These researchers will be able to integrate different technologies to open up new areas of research, enhancing the reputations of their research institutes and companies.

Instruct is able to offer a range of workshops delivered at Instruct Centres by internationally recognised experts. The 8th Instruct training call closed the 10th November 2017 and the results can be viewed via this link.

Instruct courses adhere as far as possible with the criteria defined by EMTRAIN (an EU Innovative Medicines Initiative project, of which Instruct is a member). EMTRAIN is establishing a comprehensive online searchable database (on-course) of training courses that support European life sciences, both for academic and commercial scientists. Instruct has agreed to work with on-course in adopting their criteria of course quality to allow inclusion of our training courses in the database where appropriate. The criteria are set out below:

  • Defined and transparent admission criteria.
  • A predefined set of teaching objectives, leading to defined learning outcomes.
  • Adequate, appropriate and up to date facilities, infrastructure, leadership and competencies available for the support of student learning.
  • Assessment of the students' achievement in accordance with the agreed learning outcomes of the training offered.
  • A system for collecting, assessing and addressing feedback from learners, teachers, technical/administrative staff and programme/course/module managers.
  • Availability of appropriate and updated reference material.
