Closure of BioS Project

Closure of BioS Project

02/03/2021 21:33

We have reached the closure of the BioS Project and look back at 3 years of hard work, interesting exchange and the creation of impactful results.


When starting in 2018, the BioS consortium, consisting of 13 partner organizations from 8 countries across Europe, were strangers to each other. Four Transnational Partner Meetings and many virtual meetings later, we grew together as a team and were able to jointly create the BioS Vocational Open Online Course on Bioinformatics for Health Care Professionals, where we have already trained more than 1.100 learners.

In addition, we created six BioS Policy Briefs as well as Policy Recommendations showing the impact and importance of Bioinformatics knowledge and tools in the Healthcare Sector. We raised awareness on this highly topical issue during own events and our participation in relevant conferences.

The BioS Course will remain freely accessible via the BioS Virtual Learning Environment until end of June 2021 for all interested learners.
