The European autophagy consortium Driving next-generation autophagy
researchers towards translation (DRIVE) held its kick-off meeting in
Groningen on the 14th and 15th of June 2018. This
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Early Training Network was approved under the
European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program and is
funded for 4 years. Within DRIVE, 14 European research teams from
academia and industry will train 15 PhD students through applied,
cross-disciplinary and collaborative macroautophagy/autophagy research.
The goal of DRIVE is to stimulate applied approaches in autophagy
research and provide training towards translation, while advancing our
knowledge on autophagy in specific physiological and pathological
states. The strong focus on translation will prepare the PhD students to
be at the forefront to exploit autophagy for the development of
therapies directly benefitting patients. Thereby, DRIVE will contribute
to filling the educational gap that currently exists between academia
and industry, and will prepare its PhD students for alternative and
highly flexible professional paths
