Nordic Pharmaceutical Translation and Innovation (NordicPharmaTrain)

The consortium is based on 10 top universities within the Nordic region and focus on i) mobility actions for young researchers and senior scientists; ii) research and education in collaboration with the strong life science partners within the region; and iii) training and mentorship of young researchers to equip them for future leadership within Nordic biotech and pharma industry.

Via cooperation with other EU-based consortia and global top-ranked universities, the Nordic vibrant life science community is made visible to scientist outside the geographical location, facilitating attraction of new talents to the Nordics. The close interaction with industrial and clinical partners will safeguard natural transit from the NordicPharmaTrain to the Nordic life science academia and industry.

NordicPharmaTrain will hence act as a world-leading educator in pharmaceutical sciences. We are a facilitator supporting the Nordic region with the next generation pharmaceutical scientists, of critical need to maintain the Nordic life science business in pole position.

The NordicPharmaTrain is the future training environment within translational and innovative research, acting as a vehicle for mobility both within the consortium and towards the rich and lively life science sector in the region.
