JRC Opens Call for Training and Capacity Building Topics for the Nanobiotechnology Laboratory

The European Commission's (EC) Joint Research Center (JRC) opens for the purposes of training and capacity building its scientific laboratories and facilities, including its Nanobiotechnology Laboratory. JRC opened a call (see https://ec.europa.eu/jrc/en/research-facility/open-access/calls/training/2019-1-TCB-NanoBiotech ) on March 4, 2019, for the following training and capacity building topics for the Nanobiotechnology Laboratory:

- Hands-on training on nanomaterials sizing using state-of-the-art instrumentations such as dynamic light scattering, disk centrifuge sedimentation, asymmetric and sedimentation field flow fractionation with different detectors, and analytical ultra-centrifuge;

- Introduction into commonly used in vitro assays for studying nanomaterial-cell interactions and highlighting pitfalls occurring during assay development due to the specific nature of nanomaterial (in vitro dosimetry, interaction of nanomaterial with cell reagents);

- Hands-on training on biomolecular interaction studies using surface plasmon resonance and quartz microbalance techniques;

- Hands-on training on Raman spectroscopy, ellipsometry, electron microscopy, and an introduction to surface chemistry analysis using XPS and/or ToF-SIMS; and

- Hands-on training on ICP-MS, including single particle detection.

Other topics may also be requested in the proposal by the lead user institution. JRC requires that the lead user institution and user institutions be from a country associated to the European Union (EU) Research Program Horizon 2020. The lead user institution must be from a university, research or public institution, or from a small-medium-enterprise (SME). Applications are due June 3, 2019.
