ETUDE is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovation Training Network (ITN), funded by the European Commission, Horizon 2020 Program. It is designed to train the next generation of researchers in Functional Disorders (FD). The network will provide PhD training to 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) within three year fixed-term positions.
ETUDE enables a new generation of researchers to interact in a unique manner and to create an unprecedented European network to improve care for patients with Functional Disorders (FD). ETUDE consists of partners with a wide variety of backgrounds covering the whole range from experimental and theoretical models to the clinical practice and industry. ETUDE is grounded in existing collaborations within the EURONET-SOMA network, initiated in 2016. This network has resulted in several joint publications, research exchanges, symposia, and a Summer school on FD. With ETUDE, we aim to develop our collaboration one step further into a pan-European graduate school.
