Periodic Report Summary 2 - SIPOD2 (Structural International Post Doc Program 2)

This is a 5 years program and is intended to attract scientists from abroad as well as Europeans that have spent a PhD or a 3 years experience elsewhere. The fellows also participate to the training scheme and have the opportunity to gain new skills in disciplines that are not strictly related to a scientific training.
It is expected that besides offering a good training for a future life of group leaders, this programme gives the opportunity to the Post-Docs to create a network of excellent scientists that will serve them in their future independent careers.
This program encompasses the coordinated action of three major Biomedicine Research Centers in Lombardy, that gathered into a Structured International Post-Doctoral program (SIPOD). These research centers operate in conjunction with the Scuola Europea di Medicina Molecolare (SEMM) whose aim is to promote the training and research of young scientists within emerging sectors of biomedicine.
SIPOD is designed to attract excellent scientists and to boost their career as post-doctoral fellows towards becoming successful and independent group leaders. SIPOD aims to foster the incoming trans-national mobility and the reintegration of fellows. SIPOD is characterized among others by:
1. Equal Opportunities for men and women, and consideration of career breaks.
2. Higher education program based on five training activities: Patenting, Tech transfer and Licensing; Grants scouting, writing and management; Team leading and Group organization; Translational Research and Clinical Trials; Ethical issues in science.
3. Fostering the career development toward successful and independent group leaders.

During the reporting period we were mainly focused on the last call to recruit additional post docs and on the training activities. We opened the call on, 30 July 2015 with deadline 15 September 2015. Four training courses were held in the reporting period.
