CORBEL New course syllabi for a modular curriculum for piloting in RIs

Matser, Vera; Schuengel, Manuela

Our main target audience of the CORBEL training programme is technical operators of Research Infrastructures (RIs) in biological and medical RI hubs and nodes. The CORBEL course syllabi for a modular curriculum for piloting in RIs involves the following types of training activities: webinar programme, training courses and workshops, and a staff exchange programme. The content of the curriculum has been based on the development of the CORBEL competency profile (D9.1 - CORBEL Refined organisational competency framework needed by distributed RIs at 3 development stages - and the gap analysis that was subsequently completed.

The first CORBEL training course, “Data Visualisation for Biology: a practical workshop on design, techniques and tools” and the pilot webinars “Identifying and Networking with Industry: How to Market Your Research” and  “User Experience Design for more user-friendly applications” respectively by speakers from EATRIS and EMBL-EBI, have been completed. The staff exchanges programme is underway and the call for participants in out for the 2017 staff exchanges (, which will take place in October 2017.

This deliverable will focus on the types of training activities and the procedures that have been established during the pilot activities and by taking advantage of the best practice shared by other relevant training initiatives (e.g. ELIXIR[1], Ritrain[2], BioExcel[3]). These include metrics to describe training courses, templates for post- event feedback surveys and a detailed checklist on how to organise a CORBEL webinar. D9.3 (delayed to end of October 2017) will focus on the content and impact of the delivered pilot activities.
