“Hi, my name is Mirren and I’m…” a project manager for an EU-funded project called iPLACENTA.
I should really relearn the sentence, because most of the time people don’t know what that means. What usually follows is that I explain what iPLACENTA is about: it’s a training network of 15 PhD students with quite different backgrounds and approaches who do research on the placenta and placental disease. But how do I go on?
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.
