For the very first time all ESRs met in person from November 10 to 12 at the Autumn School 2021 at Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands. The first two days were entirely dedicated to soft skill development. From the Japanese philosophy of Ikigai to the expansion of your personal potential and eventually analytic storytelling a lot of important aspects were covered. Of course networking did not come off badly.
The last day was dedicated to the science. Instead of presenting the latest results individually the ESRs prepared group presentation within their workpackage, thereby emphasizing the connections between their projects and maybe even uncover a few new ones.
