About Training and Education

Modern life sciences call for advanced data and technological expertise. Researchers and programmers need training to acquire such skills. This training need extends beyond the borders of technologies (e.g., proteomics, bioinformatics, imaging), life sciences sectors (e.g., agro, health), ESFRIs, and countries. The DTL Training and Education activities (‘DTL Learning programme’) bring together the training expertise of public and private parties in the life sciences in the  Netherlands. In addition, we align our efforts with initiatives in Europe (ELIXIR) and abroad (e.g.,  GOBLET, RDA-CODATA).  Our training activities are open to all and we welcome new collaborations.

Action Line 1: People
Individuals committed to collaborate on training and education form the heart of the DTL Training and Education activities.

Action Line 2: DTL Course Overview
The DTL Course Overview provides a structured overview of courses, trainings and workshops offered by the DTL partners and other organisations, which can be searched by keywords and tags. It is automatically transferred to the European training portal TeSS.

Action Line 3: Developing courses
Together with our collaborators, we identify the training needs in the field, both in academia and industry. We initiate the development of new training activities (e.g., courses, hackathons, workshops, consultancy, help desk). In addition, we work on qualification processes (e.g., to become a qualified data expert).

Action Line 4: Outreach
We stimulate and extend existing public outreach initiatives of the DTL partners.
