Training event 4: Systems biology-oriented bioinformatics & EU project management

Training event 6: Systems biology-oriented bioinformatics & EU project management
© University of Potsdam

The fourth training event was held in Potsdam, Germany from 11 to 17 June 2013. The training was provided by U.Potsdam, Max Planck I., and Eurice.

Training Programme

Scientific training: University of Potsdam already runs a number of educational programmes, partially together with Max Planck Institute. The scientific courses provided for WallTraC were organized in connection with these programmes. Scientific training covered a broad spectrum of topics ranging from molecular phenotyping technologies to bioinformatics, specifically to data integration and modelling. A special emphasis will be given to (i) deciphering how cellulose is synthesized and incorporated into the cell wall matrix; (ii) mathematical modelling of metabolic and regulatory networks in plants; and (iii) machine learning to glean information from and detect unforeseen relationships within large data sets using functional genomics strategies.

Complementary skills training: Eurice presented "EU project management". The course gave an overview of administrative management issues in EU funded projects with regards to both management structures and procedures. This included financial management, research management, reporting, decision-making management as well as risk management & contingency planning.

They talk about the event

At the end of the event, Jeff X. Zhang, PhD student at Newcastle University, and António Sousa, PhD student at CP Kelco, gave us their impression about the training:

“Having a session in European project management is a good reminder that these sorts of projects involve some more aspects rather than science itself. Overall we had a good introduction to what is going on behind the scenes when it comes to financial management at a bigger scale than our labs or institutes. Alexandre Thebaud and Alexandre Theodoridis gave us “great” perspectives (worthy of their names) into subjects that normally most of the students are unaware of. I personally enjoyed the talk we had about “Administrative management issues in EU funded projects”, as there we learned some aspects that are involved in project proposals and their acceptance in the EU context. We also heard about budgets dedicated to research and it was interesting to know how much Europe is investing in us, young students and what is foreseen for the future. It was a rather informal presentation where everyone had their chance to get involved in the discussion and I guess it went pretty well. In the end it was also funny to see some colleagues struggling with some budget calculation exercises! ” Tóne.

"The Potsdam training provided with a great opportunity to broaden our mind, not only in the field of systems biology-oriented bioinformatics, but also dynamic synthesis of plant cell wall, as well as the EU project management. Thanks to the great cooperation of the two neighbouring research partners. I believe for many of us the R training session was the first time and would be unforgettable, as it always feels good to gain extra experience and skills. Great lectures from Staffan Persson as well as David Breuer about “networks” that re-defined our understanding of existing concept. Not to mention the bold graffiti and lovely music of the German cities, this event was meant to be wonderful. " Jeff
