What is STIMULUS
STIMULUS is a European Training Network working on reducing healthcare-associated infections. We train early-stage researchers (Ph.D. students) for a career in biomaterials by researching smart wound dressings that can detect and treat bacterial infections without opening the wound.
To accomplish this, STIMULUS combines the expertise of organic, macromolecular, physical and materials chemists, materials scientists, electronic engineers, biotechnologists, medical doctors (clinicians), (micro)biologists, government policy experts, and representatives from both SMEs and large enterprises. Our consortium bridges from academia and medical research institutes to policymakers and industry.
Our researchers get individualized and joint training in all these disciplines and relevant sectors along the value chain, giving them a unique and genuinely interdisciplinary and multi-sectoral training experience.
