  • Karusel 1

IMPRESS is an Innovative Training Network (ITN) of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions funded by the EU Research and Innovation Programme Horizon 2020. The project brings together experts from inter-disciplinary fields of expertise ranging from molecular biology to social sciences and runs for 4 years from January 2015.

The main objectives of IMPRESS are:

  • To develop innovative production strategies for the conservation and management of endangered freshwater fish species
  • To train a new generation of researchers with multi-disciplinary skills needed in the emerging field of reintroduction biology

IMPRESS paper published in Euroscientist

The ESRs in IMPRESS have written a joint paper on the main concepts of the project that recently was published in Euroscientist. Congratulations!

Available PhD position in fish biology

IMPRESS is looking for a highly motivated and talented scientist to apply for a PhD position at the Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment of the Hebrew University, Israel. This specific PhD project will determine the interaction between the gonadotropins and their receptors in sturgeon, towards the development of novel methods for enhancement of reproduction.
