In snowy region of Lapland, RENALTRACT held its first workshop in Oulu, Finland from 7 to 11 March 2016. The agenda was followed in a productive and interactive atmosphere.
It was the occasion for the students to meet up for the first time, to have presentation of their student path and their project, to attend lectures with the participation of Seppo Vainio and his team and also to practise mice dissections, cell cultures and OPT.
The whole group was warmly welcomed in Biocenter of Oulu and had the chance to have a better view on Oulu’s facilities. This will certainly raise some ideas in terms of secondments as some of RENALTRACT students will spend some time in Oulu later on as for secondments. Also, Early Stage Researchers have acquired new techniques and knowledge of each other projects which will be very important in future collaborations.
Next meeting to follow is in partnership with EURenOmics EU project in Paris!
