CISTER fosters stronger relationship with former researchers
4, Jan, 2017
CISTER has a new initiative to increase interactions with former members of the unit to create new synergies from old partnerships. It’s natural that previous members of a lab keep working in the same areas but, unfortunately, potential fruitful collaborations are often overlooked. This initiative looks to overcome this limitation by providing preferential bi-directional communication channels between existing and former researchers. Areas that may benefit from this exchange include mobilizing new researchers, preparing project proposals, promoting exchange initiatives for students (PhD and others), provide strategic feedback and many others. Former CISTER members are now distributed around the world in Brazil, USA, South Korea, Singapore, India, Czech Republic, Sweden, France, Germany, Netherlands, United Kingdom and other countries.
