This way, interested institutions can split the 12 modules among staff members according to organisational needs. This option is not covered by a Master certificate.
The Research Infrastructure will however be awarded with a Certificate of Excellence in Research Infrastructure Leadership, flagging it as an organisation that values staff development and thereby enhancing its attractiveness as an employer.
