It was a close friend, a former GRIIS trainee, who told me about the GRIIS for the first time. I applied to the GRIIS as a trainee hoping to gain work experience in a health research team.
I got to know dynamic individuals, spun links beyond the office door and learned about more disciplined methods of working. I came out of this experience as a more mature software developer and better prepared for work in real life.
I have a long-standing interest in issues related to interoperability and system integration. That’s why, after a year in business, I started graduate studies. The research setting at the GRIIS motivates me. Here I can explore theoretical issues and experiment in concrete and applied situations.
The interdisciplinary approach of the GRIIS, visiting collaborators from Europe and the use of innovative technologies are aspects that allow me to constantly advance on a personal and professional level.
As part of my future research career, I was looking for a place where I could work on projects that were both innovative and useful. The research environment within the GRIIS is very pleasant and has allowed me to put my knowledge into practice. The GRIIS has all the tools necessary for the smooth running of my research projects and there is very good collaboration between students and researchers.
My journey at GRIIS has been remarkable. The intercultural environment is beneficial to learning and conducting scientific research.
I was surrounded by wise and friendly people. My two interships have allowed me to gain technical and professional skills which have turned out to facilitate my transition from being student to becoming a professional.
