The NCCR Educational Programmes will identify opportunities and encourage partner institutions to integrate the concepts and results of the NCCR into their teaching at Bachelor, Master and PhD levels, and to offer short-term research projects for students. The NCCR will further aid and stimulate the planning of a new MSc specialization in Microbiomes at UNIL and at ETHZ.

Through collaborations with doctoral schools across Switzerland, the NCCR will foster the inclusion of microbiome studies in the education of PhD students. These activities will ensure the training of a future generation of scientists in this field of growing importance.
