The Programme of the visit included the following topics: soft skills important for successful leadership, how to improve the visibility of research through ORCID, how to improve grant and publication writing strategies, funding opportunities from the European Union’s funds.
Partners from Ghent shared good practices related to the establishment and functioning of CRIG network – a virtual Cancer Research Institute in Ghent, which can be of high importance for establishing similar initiatives in Poznań.
