As part of the Metagenomics training, the eLearning course and the workshop reached a significant number of 187 participants from 34 countries all around the world. These numbers show not only the general interest on metagenomics and the trust in the EFFORT partners to grasp this knowledge but also the high impact of the EFFORT Project in six continents (see picture 1).
The workshop was held on 19-20 March 2018, in Tallinn (Estonia). 41 participants from 14 countries got hand-on experience and were involved in challenging discussions on Metagenomics led by the EFFORT experts (picture 2).
