ADVANCE – Educating the next generation of ATMP professionals

Project Acronym ADVANCE
Funding Program Erasmus Plus
Coordinator EATRIS

ADVANCE in a nutshell

ADVANCE is a 30-month EU training project, supported by Erasmus plus programme with the objective to develop a 3-stage blended learning programme to support early-career biomedical scientists in developing currently missing scientific knowledge, transversal skills and competences to meet the key challenge areas existing in the ATMP development cycle.
