The current priority goals of the EuPA Education Committee (EC) are:
- Coordination of European-wide workshops and courses to promote and enhance the quality of proteomics knowledge through the life sciences community, general public and governmental bodies.
- Coordinate and promote European-wide scientific exchange programs for young researchers to enhance their scientific career and promote cultural exchange and acceptance throughout Europe.

EuPA Young Investigator Prize
The European Proteomics Association (www.eupa.org) awarded this prize at the 10th EuPA Annual Congress from 21-25 June 2016, in Istanbul, Turkey (www.eupa2016.org). A special session was dedicated to presentations of young PhDs.
The winner, judged by the panel after the presentations, received €1.000, sponsored by the Journal of Proteomics, and a EuPA certificate.
This year's winner is:
Fan Liu, PhD

PDA16 - Proteomics Data Analysis
Mass spectrometry based proteomic experiments generate ever larger datasets and, as a consequence, complex data interpretation challenges. In this course, the concepts and methods required to tackle these challenges will be introduced, covering both protein identification and quantification. The course will rely exclusively on free and user friendly software, all of which can be directly applied in your lab upon your return from the course.
An introduction to the available online resources and repositories will also be given. Here you will see how to link the results from proteomic experiments with external data to conduct pathway, gene ontology and interaction analyses.
In the course, you will also learn how to submit data to the ProteomeXchange online repositories, and how to browse and reprocess publicly available data from these repositories.
The course will provide a solid basis for beginners, but also new perspectives to those already familiar with standard data interpretation procedures in proteomics.
- Deadline for applications: April 5th 2016
- Course dates: April 11th - April 15th 2016
International Proteomics Tutorial Programme
A two-part programme providing Tutorials and Slide Shows for teaching.
TUTORIALS: These are available as open-access articles in four of the main proteomics journals.
SLIDE SHOWS: These are annotated Powerpoint articles for teaching and are available for download from the Journal home pages.
