International Educational Networks

The CDR is a truly multinational and multidisciplinary research and education institution. Over 50% of our scientists come from abroad; and, our staff represents a broad range of scientific disciplines including Pharmaceutical Sciences, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physics, Engineering, Biology, Bioinformatics, and others. We greatly value our participation in numerous international educational networks. These include:

  • ERASMUS -- Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is one of the biggest interdisciplinary student associations in Europe, founded in 1990 for supporting and developing student exchange. They are present in 296 Higher Education Institutions from 33 countries, and the network is constantly developing and expanding.
  • GPEN -- Globalization of Pharmaceutical Education Network (GPEN) is an international post-graduate education network initiated by the University of Kansas, Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry. GPEN organizes a post-graduate student symposium and several mini-courses every two years. GPEN is funded by donations from the pharmaceutical industry, and the contributing industrial partners may send their observers to the GPEN meetings. The next meeting (GPEN2012) will be held at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, November 28 – December 1, 2012.
  • GALENOS -- GALENOS is a European Union FP6-funded Marie Curie EST network. GALENOS is coordinated from University of Saarland (Prof. Claus Michael Lehr); and, the network provides a Euro-PhD. program in Advanced Drug Delivery, organizes mini-courses, and offers 12-month stipends for foreign students willing to carry out part of their Ph.D. studies in the host laboratories.The CDR is one of the 10 host laboratories for foreign post-graduate students in the field of Advanced Drug Delivery.
  • CHEMSEM -- The Chemical Sensors and Microanalytical Systems graduate school (CHEMSEM) combines microfabrication and optical technologies of modern electronics with modern analytical chemistry and offers a high quality education for the needs of the current and future analysts.
  • CRS -- The Controlled Release Society (CRS) is an international organization that serves 3,000 members from more than 50 countries. Two-thirds of the CRS membership represents industry and one-third represents academia and government. The CDR participates in the Nordic Chapter of the CRS.
  • FinPharmaNet -- FinPharmaNet is a network of four national graduate schools for drug research training in Finland: Drug Discovery Graduate School (DDGS), Graduate School in Pharmaceutical Research (GSPR), Finnish Graduate School in Toxicology (ToxGS), and Clinical Drug Research Graduate School (CDRGS).
