Flemish Training Network Life Sciences (FTNLS)

The Flemish Training Network Life Sciences (FTNLS) is a joint initiative of KU Leuven, Universiteit Gent, Universiteit Antwerpen, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Universiteit Hasselt and VIB that takes into account commitments & requirements of a recent ‘order of the Flemish Government awarding a grant for the framework of young scientists’. The mission of the network is to jointly organize high-level workshops for researchers active in the life sciences. In concrete, FTNLS is a forum that will offer the regional scientific community a unique chance to attend open keynote lecturers and, on top, to participate in a framework of highly interactive training sessions.
