BluePharmTrain is a multi-disciplinary alliance of 18 European academic and industrial partners working in collaboration to train young scientists in multi-disciplinary aspects of blue biotechnology.

The focus of the project will be on using marine sponges for the development of new pharmaceuticals, because sponges are world record holders for the diversity of bioactive molecules they harbour.

BluePharmTrain will provide a complementary set of experimental and conceptual local and network-wide training modules and workshops to 15 young researchers. The recruited fellows will work towards personalized training plans to meet individual needs and interests. The presence of a large consortium of versatile biotechnology, pharmaceutical and consultancy firms ensures a good balance between academic and transferable skills acquired by the fellows.
