New ‘European Certified Pharmacologist’ inspired by LifeTrain

In his talk held at the APHAR 2014 conference in Innsbruck, Austria, Thomas Griesbacher, president of APHAR and current president of the Executive Committee of the Federation of European Pharmacological Societies (EPHAR), presented the recently established European Certified Pharmacologist (EuCP) certificate. EPHAR is a participant in the LifeTrain initiative. The EuCP certificate is part of EPHAR’s endeavour towards the implementation of the LifeTrain Agreed Principles.

 In her presentations at the same conference, Christa Janko of EMTRAIN introduced the LifeTrain project. The on-course® system, too, was part of Christa’s talks, both as a search engine for education and training courses in the biomedical sciences and as a research and analysis tool for trends in post-graduate courses provided in Europe. In addition, the conference participants were provided information about LifeTrain and the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) education and training projects. Visitors could also test the on-course® website at the on-site EMTRAIN information booth.

 The abstracts of all four presentations mentioned can be found in the Austrian Pharmacological Society’s (APHAR) open-access journal Intrinsic Activity (2014; 2, Suppl. 1, pp. 21-23).
