The feedback from the event was very positive. All students agreed that the summer school
- met their expectations
- material/course was helpful to their career
- should be repeated in the future
- was the right length
- should be recommended to other students
Overall the quality of the curriculum material, tutorials, lectures, organisation and facilities were well received. Another aspect which was quite important for young scientists was the opportunity to make friends and to develop professional relationships. Due to the international format of the summer school this was very much supported and students confirmed that the event has helped them in their career.
In total the summer school was seen as a big success.
