STREAM Training Programme

STREAM is a Marie Skłodowska Curie Initial Training Network that aims at career development of young researchers on scientific design, construction manufacturing, and of advanced radiation instrumentation. The STREAM training program offers a vast and diverse set of training opportunities for the Early Stage Researchers (ESR) recruited in the project.

Each STREAM ESR is assigned an individual high-level research project. The researchers will either be enrolled in a PhD program or will benefit from a specialized career-building training and certification in project management (e.g. PMP).

Building blocks of STREAM training programme


The ESRs will also benefit from secondments during which they will perform phases of their work at another STREAM partner’s premises, learning how to work both in academia and in industry. The STREAM Consortium consists of both academic and industrial partners of excellence that provide training for the researchers in their areas of expertise.

The STREAM training program consists of scientific training, entrepreneurship and business training as well as complementary skills training that take place both at the ESR’s host institution as well as in the network wide training events arranged within the STREAM consortium.

The scientific training courses are directly related to the technical objectives of the ESR projects and are organized by the STREAM partners. They feature topics such as mixed analogue-digital designs and readout architectures, high-density electronics packaging and sensor module assembly, DAQ and readout systems, embedded system design and system architecture and electron imaging concepts and principles, to mention but a few.

STREAM has also a strong focus on entrepreneurship and business and in the context of the Work Package 6, the ESRs will be offered structured courses organized by the Vienna University of Economics and Business, Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The ESRs will be teamed up with Economics students to work on business projects on pre-selected STREAM technologies. The aim is to have the ESRs develop insights on potential fields of application, future R&D needs, potential partners in R&D, and distribution/dissemination strategies.

The complementary skills training provides knowledge to the ESRs in areas such as project management, financial planning & budgeting, dealing with IP and technology transfer. Also training on effective communication is organized in the form of courses on presentation and scientific writing skills, job application and CV writing. The training is offered in a logic sequence, to support ESRs during the STREAM project lifetime, and later for job searching. The underlying idea is to make sure that the ESRs will have a sound set of soft skills in addition to the technical expertise in their respective fields and can therefore better meet the needs of today’s labour market.
