35 trainees participated in the 1st TUMIEE Training School held in Greece
The first TUMIEE Training School held in Rethymno (Greece) gathered 35 trainees. Participants were mostly PhD students from European countries already involved in research activities in the field of electronic excitation.
The School, framed within a multidisciplinary approach to electronic excitation, aimed at sharing with trainees the necessary tools to go a step forward in their research and, at the same time, forging new collaborative partnerships between participants.
During 2 weeks (from September, 23rd to October, 4th) trainees attended general lectures in the mornings and hands-on computer practical tutorials in the afternoons. For the tutorials, participants were split in two groups, based on their major interests.
At the end of the School, trainees were requested to fill out an anonymous survey to give their valuations about this Training School. According to their answers, it seems they were rather satisfied. Here are some of their impressions:
“The school provided a good overview of various methods in electronic excitation modelling”
“I felt the school addressed most questions I had about methods I knew little about”
“The school was a fantastic opportunity to network with other young researchers”
