ECTS and IBMS are pleased to announce that a joint ECTS–IBMS PostDoc Training Programme will take place on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 April 2015 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, held as a pre-congress course to the 4th Joint Meeting of ECTS–IBMS.
The programme has been designed by the ECTS New Investigator and IBMS Young Investigator Committees to deliver topics relevant to PostDocs at each stage of their career and to stimulate and support wider discussion. The programme will offer dynamic sessions covering a variety of topics in both the clinical and basic fields, opportunities for delegates to share their experiences and learn from each other, as well as learning key tools for success from the range of expert speakers. Opportunities to engage and liaise with other delegates and speakers have been built into the programme to encourage and facilitate networking.
It is hoped that delegates will follow on to attend ECTS–IBMS 2015, the European bone event that combines the latest cutting–edge clinical, translational and preclinical research with clinical education, encouraging scientific networking and opportunities for collaboration in a unique and friendly environment.
The training is aimed at New Investigator members of ECTS and IBMS who are:

The training programme will take place in the beautiful city of Rotterdam, a city with an important history. Throughout the years Rotterdam has been characterised by embracing novel challenging developments and is in the 2014 New York Times top 10 list of places in the world to visit. The famous renaissance humanist, Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus (1466-1536), was born in Rotterdam. Erasmus stood for common sense, freedom of intellect and literary expression, all of which are very important for today’s progression of science and improvement of clinical care. The Erasmus University Medical Center is named after him.
Further details about the training location, together with maps and directions, will be provided shortly.
