Training is a central mission of the IMI. Each year the Institute trains post-doctoral fellows, PhD and graduate students from various universities and institutions based in Belgium and abroad. On the basis of their background and their research topic, young researchers are integrated into the research teams of the Institute in which they play a central role in ongoing research projects.
Scientific and technological training is organized through weekly seminars, thematic days fostering scientific discussions and journal clubs.
Beyond this, the Institute seeks to raise the awareness of researchers on broader topics such as project management, intellectual property, and the economic and societal impact of their work.
Through these training activities, we aim to prepare our researchers for a future career in the public or private sectors.
