HOMIN: “Host Microbe Interactions in Health and Disease: Interface with the Immune System” is an Initial Training Network (ITN) Program funded by the European Union Marie Curie Actions.

Five academic and private sector institutions based in three European countries participate and will collaborate with an array of other European academic and private partners.

HOMIN: “Host Microbe Interactions in Health and Disease: Interface with the Immune System” is an Initial Training Network (ITN) Program funded by the European Union Marie Curie Actions. Five academic and private sector institutions based in three European countries participate and will collaborate with an array of other European academic and private partners.

HOMIN is designed as an advanced education and research program meant to train junior investigators possessing medical and/or scientific educational backgrounds to become future leading scientists in academic institutions, private companies, or administration.

HOMIN aims at providing to ten junior investigators with scientific and complementary skills education, leading to a PhD diploma, within a multidisciplinary, international and intersectorial (academic-private) environment.

The host institutions participating in the Homin programme will establish 36-month recruitment contracts with the selected young researchers

 

 

HOMIN Objectives  

 

 

1. To provide scientific education through the study of host-microbe interactions, particularly focusing on immune responses and vaccine development.

To this end, Homin will provide cutting-edge scientific projects in subjects in which the HOMIN partners are international leaders.

2. To provide an exceptional nurturing environment through an academic-private sector laboratory network composed of academic partners and companies of different sizes and activities. This collaborative scientific environment, will allow the junior investigators to appreciate research in both the academic and the private sector, and their connections at the European level. It will provide opportunities for scientific communication and networking at the European and International levels.

3. To provide an array of complementary training on scientific, as well as transferable skills, aimed at developing the young researchers’ creativity, curiosity, adaptability, auto-evaluation capacity, feeling for innovation and discovery application, capacities for team work, for preparing a proposal and for communicating on science to different audiences.

HOMIN’s goal is to promote the development of the conscious identity of young scientists preparing them for a broad professional career spectrum
