EDUC8 Consortium

The EDUC8 is an Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 Programme.

EDUC8 is composed of leading European scientists dedicated to understanding the immunogenicity of therapeutic pro-coagulant factor VIII (FVIII) in patients with haemophilia A (HA), a major societal concern owing its burden on patients health and quality of life, on clinical management and on European health systems.



The enrolled ESRs are exposed to a core common educational package and develop individual PhD research projects dedicated to decreasing the societal burden associated with the development of anti-FVIII antibodies.

In a tribute to the concept of the fully developed mind coined by the French philosopher Michel de Montaigne on education, our ambition is to form a novel generation of scientists with deep scientific knowledge, multicultural exposure, imagination, pragmatism and understanding of both the academic and private sectors. This will foster translational research in European on the immunogenicity of therapeutic proteins.
