the premium programme are easy going and we are here because we want to
be here. It is fun to be with motivated and interesting people from different
academic backgrounds and work on a real-life project with an interdisciplinary
team. The entire experience was very enriching, you gain a lot of new insights
about a new industry, and learn more research skills. Don’t miss out on it! “

For people with prior working experience, like it was in my case, Premium helps you gain understanding and increase your respect for diversity in views and cultural backgrounds, an experience that does not always happen when you start working. So my advice to any potential participant is “make the most out of it! It will be a great and valuable experience.”
