Role Models

The FLP Kick-off event was a huge success. Over 100 interested doctoral students and postdocs from within the ETH Domain joined the event. In the panel discussion, the three role models shared their experiences on work-life balance and on how they manage career and family and they talked about their career paths. It was a very open and lively discussion.
