The CIBERobn Training Programme is a result of the need to establish a structured plan comprising teaching and related activities which:
A Training Plan of this type must contemplate:
Furthermore, the Training Programme must adapt to the actual needs and circumstances of CIBER staff members, of the actual lines and priorities of their research, and, of course, of patient care speed and demands in the healthcare system. In addition, besides these general adaptations, the Programme must take into account the peculiarities characteristic of the Obesity and Nutrition area.
The CIBERobn Training Programme targets all members of its groups given that the need for continuous training is universal. However, the Programme is fundamentally aimed, as is logical, at the youngest team members, as the objectives are to promote obesity and nutrition researcher training and to help consolidate their professional career as independent researchers in this subject area.
Given the nature of this programme, the members of the groups forming CIBERobn could request funding under this area for funding only those training activities that facilitate research (basic, clinical, epidemiological and in health services) relating to the lines of research of the subjects comprised in CIBERobn.
Although it is understood that the development of the aforementioned activities has allowed covering part of the CIBERobn training mission in the areas of Obesity and Nutrition, consistent with the information laid out in its by-laws as a Networking Biomedical Research Centre, it is also considered that now is the time to place greater emphasis on this area (as indicated in the CIBERobn evaluation), allowing implementation of a Training Programme per se, which on one hand is part of a more comprehensive training offer for CIBERobn members and which on the other hand can be useful as a tool for transforming this centre into a national, and eventually international reference in relation to training activities in the area of obesity and nutrition applied to health.
Programme for increasing interest in research in the physiopathology of obesity and nutrition
CIBERobn Research Initiation and Continuation Grant Programme
CIBERobn Mobility Programme
CIBERobn Higher Education Activities Programme
CIBERobn Technical and Management Training Programme
Additionally, the Plan contemplates implementing a programme for the Evaluation and Follow-up of the Quality of CIBERobn Training Activities.
