Keep Control has set-up an innovative training for the fellows to enhance their career perspective and employability. Training will be guided by both the EU principles for Innovative Doctoral Training and the European Charter and Code. First of all, Fellows receive excellent research training by leaders from both academia and industry in the field in attractive institutional environments. Keep Control combines truly interdisciplinary research options, ranging from geriatrics, neurology, neurosciences, biomechanics, to disease modelling and bioinformatics. Fellows will also be exposed to industry, either by being hosted by an industrial partner or through training events and secondments. The scientific research training will be complemented by a transferable skills training with a focus on innovation and business. The specific nature of Keep Control will facilitate international networking which will also have a lasting impact on the fellows’ careers.
