On July 12-13, 2022 MSCA fellows, supervisors, coordinators, alumni and policy makers gathered at the ESOF Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Satellite Event in Leiden, Netherlands. ESR Ghizlane Choukrani and Supervisor Valerie R. Wiersma (UMCG) represented the I-DireCT project on site to join the program consisting of various workshops and panel discussions. It was a great opportunity to interact and network with people from many different research fields and discuss the core question of the conference: “How will science be conducted in the future and how can science improve its role of being a transformative agent for societal change?”. Highlight of the event was the first prize that Ghizlane Choukrani won at the poster presentation for her poster "Nanoparticle-mediated targeted cancer immunotherapy”. Congratulations!
