Dear All,

we are resending the announcement for ELIXIR-EXCELERATE Train the Trainer
courses 2018 with the following changes:

1. The wording "ELIXIR-EXCELERATE Train the Trainer Exchange Programme" was
wrong and it has been amended to read as follows: ELIXIR Staff Exchange
Programme Travel Grant
linked to the correct page. *The previous GitHub link to the Staff Exchange
Programme does not work anymore*.

2. An ELIXIR-EXCELERATE TtT course taking place in Belgium in August has
been added.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused by the previous announcement.

Thank you for your understanding.


Please circulate this email to those who might be interested.
