The University of Turin hosted the first iPLACENTA Network Meeting on June 13th-14th 2019. Early-stage researchers (ESRs), supervisors and coordinators gathered in the Italian sun for fruitful exchanges, giving opportunities for ESRs to receive expert feedback on their projects and discuss new collaborations within the consortium. Their first scientific posters and oral presentations, judged by external advisors, gave a great overview of all the work already accomplished within the first months. Summary: highly motivated members, and plenty of exciting perspectives for the coming years !
About the blog
Being a PhD student in a European training network is a life-changing adventure. Moving to a new country, carrying out a research project, facing scientific (and cultural) challenges, travelling around Europe and beyond… Those 3 years certainly do bring their part of new - sometimes frightening - but always enriching experiences.
