Striving for excellence
Personal experiences Galilei Track
* Gerben Ferwerda
"Doing research is a highly social line of work. You supervise students and PhD candidates and have to know how to motivate people. As a result of the Galilei Track, I developed my motivational role. It also made me feel like participating in a voyage of exploration: my own adventure and that of the other participants.
"This often reminds me of something John Lennon once said: “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans”. In addition to the fantastic training programmes, we created a group in which ambitions and personal development took shape in a natural and open manner!"
* Suzette Elias
"Participating in the Galilei Track creates ties. As participants, we also run into each other in other situations. Already, we experienced how our different talents reinforce each other. This creates wonderful opportunities for the long term."
