Activities in StarOmics are divided in three basic categories:

  1. Scientific knowledge (K): scientific seminar series, workshops for improvement of scientific knowledge, topic groups, national and international congresses.
  2. Methodological improvement (M): workshops and courses on specific methods, scientific exchanges to learn new methods.
  3. Acquisition and reinforcement of skills(S): courses/workshops for reinforcement of expertise (scientific writing, scientific presentation, developing a grant proposal,..).

Activities are primarily for PhD students belonging to StarOmics. If there are places available, master students, PhD students, postdocs and academics can attend for free but traveling/accommodation expenses cannot be reimbursed.
