Mid-term check

We held our mid-term check with the Research Executive Agency on November 26th, 2018, just before the beginning of the Winter School. Caroline Peters, our Project Officer, checked the implementation of the project, with a specific focus on the recruitement of the ESRs.

Claire Donohoe (ESR 8) and Dáire Gibbons (ESR 3) are our ESR representatives on the Supervisory Board. They were elected by the other ESRs for 1 year, to represent them and take part of the decisions linked to the implementation of the project. 

They explain why they choose to be candidates and their mission.


Meeting with high school students

On March 18th, 2019, (ESR 7), Nidia Maldonado-Carmona, met with high school students from Lycée Turgot in Limoges, to explain that it’s possible to make a presentation in English without being a native speaker. I was also the occasion to briefly present her work and her research. It was her first experience with a young public, great job Nidia!
