The Story Behind the PI

28 March, 26 April, 30 May, 20 June, 25 July | i3S



Welcome to “The Story Behind the PI” at i3S! 

This year, after the pandemic situation that we faced, we decided to promote the scientific interchange among our community, bringing back the spirit of “The Story Behind the CV” but now highlighting the path of our outstanding PI.  Each month we will get to know a different PI not only their scientific achievements but most importantly how they got there. Therefore, we would like to invite the whole community to an informal and laid-back conversation with our honorable i3S PIs. We challenge you to be part of this event bringing your best mood and the unanswered questions that you always wanted to know about our PIs.
We truly believe that this event will help us to bring back our academic spirit and get us closer together. 
Join us on this “The Story Behind the PI” journey! We hope you enjoy it!
