The YEASTCELL ITN trained 11 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in the field of Yeast Biotechnology, within a consortium of 9 Public Sector (6 Universities, 3 Research Institutes) and 4 Private Sector (2 large companies and 2 SME) partners. The research resulting from YEASTCELL is at the fundamental/application interface.
Currently 7 PhD doctorates have been awarded and those individuals have already secured positions in both academia and industry. The remaining ESRs plan to submit during 2018.
The project was funded by the European Union FP7 Marie Curie Programme and ran from September 2013 to August 2017.
