RECAP preterm Summer School E-Learning programme - launch on 1st July 2021

Collaborative research on very preterm birth

The RECAP preterm Cohort Platform is a sustainable, geographically diverse and multidisciplinary database of national and European cohorts of babies born very preterm or with very low birth weight. It contains cohorts constituted over a 30 year time span and is designed to optimize the use of population data for research and innovation in healthcare, social and education policy.

Attend the RECAP preterm Summer School E-Learning programme (programme launch: 1st July 2021) and receive an overview of very preterm birth cohorts and collaborative research principles and techniques.

Through a mixture of online lectures and presentations, you will learn about existing very preterm cohorts in Europe, new research on children and adults born very preterm based on pooled data, and how to implement a collaborative research protocol – including the ethical and legal requirements, procedures for harmonising data, the technological aspects of storing and sharing data, and analytic approaches and software.

You are a researcher in the fields of neonatology, epidemiology, psychology and are interested to learn more about cohorts, registers and the use of the RECAP preterm Cohort Platform? Discover the Summer School programme!

The RECAP preterm project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 733280.
