On November 25 & 26 the consortium met for this year’s evaluation meeting, either online or in person at the Jussie campus of Sorbonne University in Paris, France. During two productive days all ESRs presented the work of the last year. The focus was not only on polished results ready for publishing but also on encountered challenges and ways to overcome them. As you can imagine that sparked quite some scientific discussion! Furthermore, it will form the basis for the recommendations of each ESR’s personal committee for the further course of the work and their career in general.
