The dates are set, flight tickets and hotels booked. The next anual meeting of the Train2Target network will take place in the EPN campus, in Grenoble, between 16 and 18 of October 2019.
Another opportunity to reconnect and network with colleagues, friends and share the recente updates on the ESR's projects.

Recently we upload into our YouTube channel (@Train2Target) another of our Science Slams, in a group of videos devised to explain who we are, what we do, what is our goal.
The most recente one was made by ESR15 Carina Matias. You can check this video, and all the other Science Slams produced so far, in our YouTube page (@Train2Target).

Recently our ESRs and some of the PIs visited Brussels to attend a workshop on grant/scientific writting and networking (hosted by Dr Jean-François Collet and organized with Drs Ian Henderson and Cuong Vuong).
A panel of invited speakers (Michael Mourez, Despoina Mavridou, Andrew Jermy and Sue Tonks among the ranks) with years of experience allowed the ESRs the opportunity to contact with an applied view on basic frameworks of every scientist, from tips on how to write good articles and on the peer-review process, on how to interact and approach peers during meetings and conferences.
Despite the always changing weather, the ESRs had an exciting time in Brussels.
Over the last months the Train2Target ESRs have been working on creating short videos to explain in an easy format what our project is all about. In total eight videos - Science Slams - have been developed and are now online on our Train2Target YouTube channel. The Science Slams explain the purpose of the Train2Target project and highlight the importance of why Train2Target’s approach towards new generation of antibiotics is highly relevant and much needed.
The videos combine easy understandable language with creative illustrations and clear graphics created by our artistic ESRs. In case you want to be kept updated, subscribe to the channel Train2Target or like and share the videos:
On the 27th – 28th May 2019 Train2Target partners are organising a Transferable skills course together with the 15 ESRs. The workshop will be held in Brussels and has the purpose to support the ESR’s in acquiring funds as well as preparing them for their future employment. Consortium members and external experts will hold the workshops, which consists of presentations, practical cases and mock interviews. The programme of these two days should empower the researcher in identifying, shaping and progressing in their personal careers.
Prof Tanneke den Blauween, our supervisor from the University of Amsterdam co-organises the EMBO Workshop on bacterial cell division in Lund, Sweden this June, while supervisor Waldemar Vollmer from the Newcastle University will be one of the speakers.
The workshop aims at bringing together both established experts and early career researchers to discuss recent major advances in our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of cell division, as well as novel aspects of division and its regulation in non-model bacteria, antibiotic target selection and drug development.
We are now also on Instagram! Joined by our roster of ESR that already cover the website and Twitter, you can now follow us to get news about the Consortium, some interesting trivia about antibiotic research and some fun facts to start the week in a great mood.

Beginning of October marked the kick-off of another working year in our Consortium, with our 2nd Annual Meeting in Naples, Italy.
This was the first time all the ESRs had the chance to presente their results to the entire Consortium after a full year of work.
The meeting was marked by good weather, exciting scientific discussions and an amazing and very warming city, and we are already excited to announce we started planning next year's Annual Meeting.
Stay tuned for more updates.
The European Researchers’ Night is a Marie Sklodowska Curie (MSCA) action, under the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020; it consists of a pan-European event taking place on the last Friday night of September.
The 2018 European Researcher’s Night took place on 27th and 28th of September. During these days, there were many science dissemination activities in different cities of Europe.
In Italy the event (MEETmeTONIGHT) was conducted in Milan and Naples.
