The pilot project "GENIAL" develops an innovative qualification module for genetic engineering in initial training. In view of the increasing importance of life sciences in industry and research, education and training in genetic engineering are essential in the future. The implementation of this module will be done according to quality standards and GMP and GLP rules.
The module will consist of both theoretical and practical (laboratory) components. The aim is to enrich initial vocational training by an innovative content and by adding a pan-European dimension.
GENIAL will initiate the development of a transnational network of partners promoting European mobility for trainees/students and trainers/teachers in order to gain new technical skills and key qualifications. The training module will also initiate a transverse discussion about the ethics, political and social implications of modern genetics.
