The Training Section includes a ‘Scientific Coordination Group’ to lead the ECDC Fellowship Programmes such as the European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET) and the EU Public Health Microbiology training programme (EUPHEM). The ‘Fellowship Programme Office’ is in charge of the administrative coordination and logistics of EPIET and EUPHEM. Finally the ‘Training Network Strengthening Group’ is responsible for ECDC training strategy, instructional design and strengthening the international network of experts and organisations that contribute to training activities.

The aim of the Training Section is “to support and coordinate training programmes in order to assist Member States and the Commission to have sufficient numbers of trained specialists, in particular in epidemiological surveillance and field investigations, and to have a capability to define health measures to control disease outbreaks.” (Article 9, Regulation 851/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 April 2004, establishing ECDC).
