FRAGNET PIs join the official opening of the ARC Centre for Fragment-Based Design

16th November 2018

FBLD training networks are now emerging on other continents, e.g., the Australian Research Council-funded ARC Centre for Fragment-Based Design has been established in Australia in 2019 with funding for five years. This industrial transformation training centre is funded by the Australian Research Council and will educate 15 young researchers in Australia in a setup very similar to that of FRAGNET. We wish our colleagues in Australia all the best and we are looking forward to collaborate and exchange experiences!
