ApPEARS Schools

ApPEARS Schools

AppEARS will provide a training programme for young researchers, through intensive cross disciplinary training in scientific, technical, entrepreneurship, innovation, transferable and communication skills, across three categories: Network-wide Training, Local Training and External Training.

The training through research and network training events will be complemented (to achieve the necessary ECTS, when applicable) by local training, defined in each ESR PCDP and approved by the supervisors and Supervisory Board. We aim to train a new generation of scientists with awareness of gender aspects (social and cultural) on the design and output of research. Emphasis will be given on training female scientists to become scientific leaders, and on ethical consideration of gender neutral management.
