OLIGOMED ESR MEETING 2022
Supported by the network, the ESRs have organised their first student-only meeting by gathering everyone in beautiful Mallorca, for the end of Autumn of 2022.
The meeting compromised of a visit to the local research institute Fundació Institut d'Investigació Sanitària Illes Balears (IdISBa); with individual project presentations and a tour of their facilities; as well as a poster showcase where the students could offer critique and advice, both on the projects and the poster designs. There was also researcher development training conducted by our partner Vitae, focusing on IP and commercialisation- getting interesting insights into entrepreneurship and how they relate to the ESRs and how they can be put into practice.
There were plenty of opportunities for us to develop our personal relationship amongst each other, and the way these meetings provide a stronger bond between the ESRs certainly leads to insightful discussions and to support each other in every area, whether its personal or professional.
