Silver Santé Study leads the way in student communication
Postgraduate students working on the Silver Santé Study in five different countries have formed a group to enable them to learn from each other’s work.
The initiative, one of the first of its kind in European research consortia, brings together master’s, Phd and postdoctorate students to exchange information, practice presentations, and keep each other informed across all areas of the project’s work.
Dr Gaël Chételat, Coordinator of the Silver Santé Study, says: “I’m delighted to support this initiative to help all our students flourish and gain as much knowledge and experience as possible while they are working on this project.
“It provides the ideal opportunity for our students to get to know each other, share information, and form their own peer-to-peer networks –- all of which are beneficial not only to our project but to the individual students and to the wider research community.”
The group – which is chaired by PhD student Sophie Dautricourt of the University of Caen, France, and Harriet Demnitz-King of UCL, UK – will continue to meet every two of three months until the end of the project.
