DAGAL network main objective is to train 8 ESRs (PhD students) and 2 ERs (postdocs) through its research, and through an ambitious programme of complementary skills training. The latter will be delivered through a series of network events, covering such diverse aspects as project management, instrumentation, publishing, IT, outreach, and career training.

Mobility is a key aspect of the
network approach. All researchers will spend time at different nodes and at meetings, and three private-sector associated partners will provide internships: a leading science publisher and two small hi-tech companies.

The proposed training programme will help prepare the
next generation of scientists: Europe’s investment for the future.
