VUmc CCA provides funding for the specialized OOA courses, the Basic Oncology course, the Advanced Immunology course and participation in conferences or laboratory visits. In addition, several subsidies are available from VU University Amsterdam. More information can be found on the website at www.vu.nl/nl/onderzoek/subsidie-fondsen.
The PhD student should consult his or her supervisor on financing a programme of courses. The most convenient way to do this is to discuss the entire training programme at the very beginning of the appointment, along with the expected costs. The project manager can then determine whether these will be covered by the project's budget.
