The early stage researchers met with all the ChroMe project (co-)supervisors in order to review the progress they have made. The challenging and vibrant discussions provided food for thought and allowed everyone involved to get a better understanding of their colleague’s research questions. In addition, during the Career Day the students were exposed to a cross-section of innovative leaders from different sectors (e.g. entrepreneurship, industry, publishing, academia etc.) who presented and discussed their personal views on various life science careers.
