The 2011 Project

Alumni Meeting



Scope of the meeting

On the 2nd September 2011 the Annual Summer Alumni Trainee Meeting was held at ESAC. The Alumni meeting gives former trainees the opportunity to present their current work to the ESAC community and to see what we are doing at ESAC regarding traineeships. It also gives current and new trainees the opportunity to see the type of career paths they can follow after their traineeship, and allows everyone to do some networking and make new friends.
