The YEASTCELL ITN trained 11 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in the field of Yeast Biotechnology. YEASTCELL ESRs worked within well-established, highly successful teams at 13 partner sites across Europe. The research undertaken in YEASTCELL is at the fundamental/application interface and with a consortium comprising 9 Public Sector (6 Universities, 3 Research Institutes) and 4 Private Sector (2 large companies and 2 SME) partners, all ESRs received interdisciplinary training in both sectors.
The programme will culminate with the award of 11 PhD doctorates and these individuals will go on to productive careers in the public or private yeast biotechnology sectors.
The project was funded by the European Union FP7 Marie Curie Programme and ran from September 2013 to August 2017.
