Post-Workshop Evaluation • Overall rating: 8.3/10 • Would you recommend this workshop to a peer?: 22/23 voted ‘yes’ • “I have to say that I was expecting this workshop to be less productive, as other networking workshops normally are. However, I am leaving with a very great sensation of having a very productive day and have built potential future collaborations” • “Would have loved more time for S. Dyhrmanto talk, and another one or two senior researchers to explain their experiences”
Post-Workshop Participant Follow-Up • Examples of questions asked: • How many collaborators did you identify at the workshop? • Which collaborators have you contacted? • Will you be submitting a proposal?
