Staying at INGENIO was a marvelous experience. Everywhere there is a space and people to talk about innovation, which is fruitfully to open new ways of thinking, new angles to your own research. It is amazing to know people that is well recognized in this knowledge field and that is ready to give some advice, but, most importantly, a nice smile. Since your arrival everyone want to welcome you and know what you are working on in order to put you on contact with people that share the same research interests. The city is lovely, and has several things to do. The ocean view is precious. It’s the kind of experience you do not want to live only once. ;)
The period in INGENIO was very important for my PhD. I had a personal and professional experience very rewarding, especially when the group of doctoral students began meeting regularly to exchange knowledge and discuss the difficulties during the doctoral process. I learned many new things that helped me so much during my doctoral research and keep very useful in my profession as researcher. I had literature suggestions, exchanged ideas on specific aspects of my research and was able to present the partial results of the thesis to receive suggestions from everyone, which helped me a lot. Also, in a personal sense, this network made the days in INGENIO become very enjoyable and entertaining. Those 6 months were unforgettable. Thank you!
I had an intellectually stimulating time at INGENIO. The researchers and PhD students are cordial and willing to share knowledge. They are pretty active and committed with academic work. It was a great experience!
