|IMforFUTURE (Innovative training in methods for future data) is funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union. The project is coordinated by the University of Leeds, and will last for 4 years starting from April 2017. Further details of the project.|
Four ESRs have written about the impact of the lockdown on their professional and personal lives – more information on their experiences can be found in the link above.
16 September 2020: Virtual Research Day
A successful Research Day took place virtually where the ESRs gave presentations on their work progress and results, followed by network discussions, as well as feedback from the Scientific Advisory Board.
Ageing Workshop to be held virtually
Due to the uncertainty around the Covid-19 outbreak, the Ageing Workshop (originally scheduled to be held in Bologna) will now take place virtually.
The workshop will have the topics of glycans and ageing. More information can be found at the event page.
16-19 February 2020: Annual network meeting
The third annual network meeting took place in Leiden this week and involved a Research Day with the ESRs providing updates on their research, training for the ESRs and board meetings. The meeting went well and several network discussions took place, with the ESRs encouraged to think about the next steps of their research as well as multi-disciplinary collaboration.
Tamás Pongrácz (ESR1) and Iva Budimir (ESR6) have recently had their first publications published where they are co-authors:
Tamás published a paper in Molecules in October 2019, and Iva’s paper was in Mathematics in November 2019. More details can be found on the Publications page.
27 September 2019: European Researchers’ Night
Several of our ESRs participated at events in Bologna and Sarajevo with the aim of bringing their research to the public and also encouraging young people to pursue research careers.
16-18 June 2019: Public engagement activities
The ESRs participated in public engagement activities in Croatia, and this included giving a workshop to local schoolchildren, delivering a talk to students at the University of Split, and speaking to the general public. The activities were related to the popularization of science by promoting awareness about the impact of environmental and other factors on ageing. The ESRs disseminated their work with IMforFUTURE, and also talked about the multidisciplinary nature of their research.
