EuroCoord Training Modules


Several e-learning modules have been created as part of the EuroCoord Training and Outreach work package (WP2).

These courses aim to improve research skills, and to provide basic, updated laboratory and clinical training to aid in the management of HIV-infected patients. They include training on HICDEP, CoDe, the course "Practical Approach to GCP", and help in manuscript writing.

The modules can be accessed here.


 

About EuroCoord

EuroCoord is a Network of Excellence established by several of the biggest HIV cohorts and collaborations within Europe - CASCADE, COHERE, EuroSIDA, and PENTA.

 

This large, integrated network exploits the scientific strengths of each collaboration to ensure that the best, most competitive HIV research is performed.

 

The main advantage of this collaborative method of working is the formation of a common virtual database, which currently has access to data from over 300,000 HIV positive people from many different settings in Europe and beyond.

 

EuroCoord is made up of 24 beneficiaries chosen from 16 countries to ensure representativeness across Europe. The nature of the collaboration means that apart from these partners, there is also an associated network of numerous affiliated sites – more than 100 collaborating centres, or third parties.

 

The tasks of EuroCoord are organised into 15 different workpackages, all of which are interrelated, and unified through the scientific oversight workpackage.

 

EuroCoord is funded for a period of 5 years from 2011 as part of the European Commission’s Framework Programme 7.
