At the recent BoD meeting of the VPH Institute (March 16th - Amsterdam) the board officially approved a new plan to boost the VPHi membership for students.
A student committee was recently appointed with the main objective to support the creation of a student chapter of the VPH Institute.
The Committee, composed by Molly Maleckar (Simula), Jerome Noailly (IBEC), Liesbet Geris (University of Liege), Vanessa Diaz (UCL) and Martina Contin (VPHi), will focus on:
The plan to boost the student membership foresees some interesting ideas and opportunities, that are now under full development. Among the others, VPHi plans to organize regular on-line webinars to offer students the possibility to present their work to the VPH community at large, gaining access to senior expertise. In addition, VPHi is exploring the organisation of a Winter School dedicated to VPH topics to take place next year in January.
Any students with interests in VPH research are encouraged to apply for a student membership, which comes at the symbolic cost of €10.
