- To establish a European Proteomics Education Network as an infrastructural tool for setting standards on a high level with the support of companies which are also interested in improving the potential of European research in the Proteomics field;
- To disseminate information, to endow students, post-doctoral researchers and other scientists effectively with high-level theoretical and practical knowledge,
- To create a platform for a fruitful cooperation in building a system of EuPA endorsed courses at different levels giving companies high visibility as important players in the field.
The EuPA Company Club Concept was first presented in September 2011. Companies involved in Proteomics Technologies are invited to join the Club as a platform for direct interaction with the Proteomics Community at the European level. Participation in EuPA's high level Educational activities provides prospective visibility for the next generation of researchers in the Proteomics field. EuPA is the organisation optimally positioned to achieve this.
