Each 5 first years of the programme, a School with lectures, workshops and round tables was scheduled in a partner/associated partner university.

The schools included:

  • 2 daylong Introductory Cross-Disciplinary Research Training sessions, dedicated to the teaching of fundamental principles of drug delivery to biologists and nanomedicine to physical scientists to maximise cross-disciplinary outputs of the EMJD. Local lecturers give these courses which are restricted to all new PhD students,
  • 5 days consisting of lectures (covering all relevant aspects related to nanomedicine as design of nanodevices, nanomedicines for diagnosis and imaging, responsive polymers and nanocarriers…), round tables, industrial and clinical workshops, poster sessions and social events.
