Support future leaders & build capacity

Future leaders

For the explosion of knowledge and developments arising out of today’s research to continue to bear fruit tomorrow, it is essential to empower future leaders by providing systematic educational and research opportunities.

I support this project


Supporting future leaders and building capacity can be realized in a number of ways.

This includes:

Regional meetings to strengthen international collaboration

Short-term traineeships

Specialist seminars

These events will develop the enormous potential for regions outside Europe to expand or begin their participation in BIG trials – or to develop highly relevant regional research.


Traineeships allow young researchers to gain hands-on experience working with BIG Member Groups, their affiliated institutions, and BIG leadership, thereby contributing directly to research within a network that can make a real difference in patients’ lives.


Dedicated to various specialties, these events bring together groups of experts to understand the particularities of specific BIG projects and to discuss and resolve related problems

Budget: each initiative costs approximately 30.000 €
