Aiming to increase regional participation in NDPIA and programme activities, five “NDPIA Ambassadors” have been appointed. The ambassadors will promote NDPIA and activities together with the NDPIA Directors of Studies for their respective region/university.
On 1-2 October, NDPIA organised a workshop on English writing and a joint meeting, the 4th NDPIA/SFM Day, together with “Svenska föreningen för mikrobiologi” (SFM) at Hjortviken Konferens, beautifully located at the west coast outside of Gothenburg. Young investigators provided very positive feedback to NDPIA/SFM management with comments like ”excellent workshop, a great poster walk, good networking opportunities” and suggest that similar events should be organised in the future.
