The mission of the European School of DNA Nanotechnology (EScoDNA) ITN is to train early stage researchers in the emerging and interdisciplinary field of DNA nanotechnology. EScoDNA will foster the development of a new generation of scientists with the skills required to meet futures challenges in bionanotechnology, from fundamental science to novel applications. By addressing the present shortage of experienced researchers in this field, EScoDNA will also promote the foundation of new bionanotechnology start-up companies.Prof. Kurt V.
