This report provides the guidance to:

 (1) Define the skills that students should have acquired within a Master’s programme in Systems Biology anywhere in Europe (or the world).

(2) Outline a possible basic educational curriculum with flexibility to adjust to different application areas and local research strengths.

(3) Describe possible career paths for students that have undergone such an education.


Recommended concepts will help to lift the status and impact of existing programmes and to establish new programmes where Systems Biology is not yet part of the portfolio, recruiting students and teachers to such programmes, shaping Systems Biology careers and instigating collaborations between programmes.
