As highlights on the Conference, Sayantan emphasises the organisation: “The program scheduling was efficiently handled by Prof. Niki Evelpidou and her team from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. A special acknowledgement is due for the group of students and scholars of the university, who worked relentlessly to make this event a success.” Sujay found that the four keynotes lectures “were without exception outstanding in content and presentation and was a real highlight of the conference”, a feeling shared by Pedro.

Overall, all Grant Holders praise the great organisation and content of the Intensive Course. Bachtiar highlights that this Course held “in a friendly environment” and allowed them to practise “lots of activities”.
