På grund av rådande läge med Covid-19 har vi valt att ställa in detta kurstillfälle. Kursen kommer att arrangeras senare under året och nytt datum annonseras när beslut fattats.

Utbildningen är nästa steg efter grundutbildningen: IP-frågor i forskningssamverkan. Får att du ska få ut så mycket som möjligt av kursen så rekommenderar vi att du först går grundutbildningen.
