Instruct Training program
We are pleased to announce that the Call for proposals for Instruct Centre Training Courses (to be held in 2019) is now open.
Instruct training courses that have been approved by the Training Committee and are supported by central Instruct funding should be implemented according to agreed standards set by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), Education and Training body funded by the European Union.

This call is for events planned, organised and implemented by Instruct Centres. Courses co-organized with industrial partners are encouraged. A list of the approved courses for 2018 is available here.
