The goal of the VITRIMAT project is to train 11 Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs).

The recruited ESRs will acquire a broad range of advanced and transferable skills within a unique, innovative, multidisciplinary and inter-sectoral training environment. Regular workshops, training schools and secondments to other EU academic and industrial partners will allow them to develop a broad range of valuable transferable skills. A very attractive salary and benefits package is offered to successful applicants.
