Transautophagy COST Action

We are part of Transautophagy COST Action CA15138, which is a European Network for Multidisciplinary Research on Autophagy, with emphasis on translation of knowledge to applications. The network has more than 200 members including researchers from public and private institutions, as well as small-medium sized enterprises, from 28 countries across Europe and neighboring regions. The network fosters collaboration by arranging and supporting training courses and scientific meetings and by funding short-term research visits between the member laboratories. COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a pan-European intergovernmental framework.

Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Network

Our group is member in DRIVE - Driving next generation autophagy researchers towards translation. The network consist of 15 research groups and 20 partner organizations located in Europe and Israel, and is coordinated by the University Hospital Groningen in the Netherlands. The DRIVE PhD students, one in each of the 15 research groups, will get training in basic and translational research, entrepreneurship and transferable skills. Research visits between the partner groups are an important part of the training.
