Below is an overview of the available training in research skills and transferable skills, open to PhD students and/or postdocs from all three doctoral schools. 'Transferable' skills are skills that can be transferred to non-academic work environments.

The current overview concerns academic year 2018-2019, as well as the period Oct-Dec 2019. From next year on, the course offer will be presented by calendar year rather than academic year.
