External Training

The overarching and inspiring theme for HT’s external training activities is to create a centre of excellence for training promising researchers in the biomedical sciences, while enabling broad access to HT’s expertise, methods and resources.

Training events for external scientists include conferences, symposia, workshops, and both theoretical and practical courses at the forefront of scientific and technological development in specific areas or technologies related to HT science and highly relevant for modern biomedical research.


Early Career Fellowship Programme

In October 2020 HT launched the Early Career Fellowship (ECF) Programme: an initiative aimed at supporting the career development and helping talented researchers start their independent research activity in Italy.

Through the ECF Programme, up to five young researchers are awarded a grant worth 200.000 EUR/year for five years to support their research programme.

The programme is open to researchers of all nationalities who have completed a doctoral degree in the last eight years. Applicants must identify a Host Institution – different from their current institution – in Italy, where they propose to establish and develop their research programme.

Questions regarding the ECF Programme can be addressed to: earlycareerfellows@fht.org.
