Cambridge Immunology Network


Entrepreneurs in Clinical Academia (ECA) is an exciting initiative from the Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCIS) offering medical academics in Europe the chance to discover more about the drug development process and how to get the most out of research.

Due to a high number of enquiries and in order to allow enough time for the applicants and referees to complete the application process, the deadline for the ECA course has now been extended to May 31, 2017. This free 1-week course is a unique initiative that gives you the chance to know about the critical steps needed to take your clinical research from bench to clinical practice. During the course, you will gain knowledge in some key areas including patent law, business planning and funding opportunities in the pharmaceutical sector.


If you are interested in a fully funded place on this course, apply online now at The applications will close on May 31, 2016. Only 21 candidates will be accepted onto the course, which will be held at the INSEAD campus in Fontainebleau from 16–20 October, 2016. More information on the course itself can be found on the website.


Successful since 2013, with over 80 candidates attending – you could be next.
