The aim of the proposed workshop is to bring together 25 young Life Science researchers and to train them in modelling of biological systems based on ‘learning by doing’. This will be achieved by tackling carefully selected problems in modern Life Sciences. Students will work together during one week in small multidisciplinary groups supervised by experienced senior scientists. This setup of actively involving young researchers in problem solving is supported by lectures in which techniques and concepts necessary to address modelling problems are presented.
We aim at about 25 student participants forming teams of 4 or 5 members. Each team will work on one specific modelling challenge during the workshop. Selection of participants will be such that interdisciplinary teams with a broad background can be formed.
