BioS – Digital Skills on Computational Biology for Health Professionals – Online Partner Meeting08/05/2020 20:55
Dates: 7 & 8 of May 2020
Another BioS transnational partner meeting was planned in Berlin in May 2020. However, due to the current pandemic situation and the restrictions resulting from it, the consortium was not able to meet in person and had to conduct the meeting online.
Maybe it was the expertise all partners have gained during last weeks in communicating and collaborating digitally, maybe it is the spirit of reaching the finish line of the project – either way, the online meeting was a full success. Many topics have been discussed, new ideas and strategies created, and solutions to challenges found. Also, we found that brainstorming works extremely well even at a distance of 2.000 km.
At the moment, BioS project is unfolding as the first round of learners are completing the BioS Course on Digital Skills on Computational Biology for Health Professionals. The consortium is proud to already count 800 enrolments to the BioS MOOC. The feedback we gain at this stage from learners as well as from external experts, helps us to further improve the course and adapt it to the needs and requirements of our focus group.
Next to course conduction and refinement, the consortium focuses on exploitation activities and prepares additional webinars, which will provide more interesting case studies on Bioinformatics and complete the course experience.
Registration to the free BioS Course is possible under: mooc.bios-project.eu
