The TRAINERS final network meeting took place in sunny Portmarnock, North Dublin, on the Irish coast in March 2019. The 14 ESRs presented an exciting array of their innovative research to date, followed by a lively discussion with the TRAINERS PIs and External Advisory Board members. Days 2 and 3 saw a busy training schedule with workshops on Regulatory affairs and Pharmacovigilance, Leadership Skills and Research Integrity & Ethics. The ESRs thoroughly enjoyed their bus tour of Dublin city and even learned how to pull a pint of Guinness!
