Introduction

ENABLECARES is a joint initiative of leading biomedical research institutes around Europe to provide high-level training on open science, entrepreneurship and other transferable skills to junior researchers, with the aim of increasing thei remployability in academia or beyond. Through co-creation and train-the-trainers strategies, we have implemented a wide range of courses to empower young scientists and align their competencies to the new market demands. The training is complemented with personalised career advice.

Goals

At ENABLECARES our aim is empower young scientists to success in their career.

Enhance junior researcher careers.

At ENABLECARES we aim to strengthen  and consolidate existing training programmes for junior biomedical researchers with advanced skills on the fields of Open Science and Entrepreneurship.

Personalised career advice

We aim to provide junior researchers with personalised guidance to identify the skills that best match their interests and competencies and allow them to pursue their career of choice.

Versatile training strategy

We offer an adaptable training strategy that combines online and face-to-face training and tailors the content to the specific needs of each participant.

Consistent auto-evaluation

We assess the impact of ENABLECARES training on the professional career of its alumni to improve local training programmes.
