The overall aim of the NanoCarb ETN is to train a new generation of creative and innovative multidisciplinary early-stage researchers in the fields of nanotechnology and carbohydrate chemistry through an integrated research training programme in academia, industry and research centre environments.

The training will focus on three core areas:

  1. Nanotechnology and glycotechnology
  2. Career and business processes
  3. Personal development skills

At the end of this project, the ESRs expertise will make them excellent candidates for a career in academia or industrial sectors.
