STROMA is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network funded under Framework Programme 7 of the European Commission. It started in January 2012 and ended in December 2015. The aim of STROMA is to promote the study of stromal cell and immune system interactions during stroma development and function in health and disease.

In STROMA we brought together world leading experts from academia and industry in Europe to address the key scientific questions in this emerging field. The purpose of STROMA is to ensure that Europe retains global leadership in this field and translates basic research on stromal cell and immune cell interactions into novel products and technologies for European industry.
