This ITN will train 11 early-stage (ESR) and 4 experienced researchers (ER) in the production of novel bioactive compounds based on fungal synthetic biology. Interdisciplinary and intersectorial biotechnological research ranging from modelling, network analysis, systems biology (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics), molecular biology (fungal genetics and biochemistry) to synthetic biology methods.
Scientific education and the demands of industry are different. Therefore, industrial partners provide secondments and training modules to share their industry experience with the trainees.

The structured training programme is shown in the tables below for each year.
