Fondation Merieux

A family foundation dedicated to fighting infectious diseases

Open / Distance Learning

Since 2010, training support has been made available by Fondation Mérieux via the GLOBE portal.

Several modules technical information sheets are available to download for self-study for GLOBE members.

Furthermore, an e-learning platform, MOODLE (open source) was integrated in to GLOBE in order to allow for the organisation of tutored sessions (in the course of qualifying training and projects).

A multidisciplinary team (with technical, education and scientific skills) was established internally in 2011, and works on the development and establishment of open and distance training (FOAD) in countries where the Foundation has a presence, all taking into account local constraints.
