What happened so far:

Having started as a small workshop among European scientific and professional bodies in 2011, today LifeTrain engages all relevant stakeholder groups and has become the initiative which drives the discussion on competency-based continuing professional development (CPD) in Europe. Together we have successfully agreed on Principles for each of the four stakeholder groups (; we have launched a website and we have run four highly productive workshops, resulting in a prosperous publication in Nature Reviews Drug Discovery ( All this would not have been possible without the input and support of LifeTrain signatories.

What next with LifeTrain:

The LifeTrain journey continues at full speed. Our next workshop for 2016 has evolved to become an open conference within the prestigious EMBL conference series. The conference entitled Lifelong Learning in the Biomedical Sciences, will be held in Heidelberg, 5-7 July 2016. We kindly invite you to register online on
