Our University of Kent ESR, Teodors, has just completed his three month academic secondment with AMBER partner Università degli Studi Roma TRE in Rome. He is now moving onto Warsaw, Poland to Politechnika Warszawska where he will be until October. One of the great benefits of being in a Marie Skłodowska-Curie funded Innovative Training Network (https://goo.gl/u2BbW7) means that as an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) you get to travel to partner institutions to complete a period of work. This broadens career skills and allows interaction across the scientific community. Well done for completing your first trip Teodors, and we hope the next few months in Poland are great!
