         9 - 10 September in Zoom | link will be sent after the registration

-> Make sure to spend time to shape your aims in motivation section and write it yourself (hello, AI). We want to know who you are, what research you're on right now. Why it's important for you to attend our Hands-on Training? Which learning objectives you have?

-> Carefully assess your programming skills and solid knowledge - honestly fill in the scale bars offered below. We will do our best to harmonize applicants level - we discourage situations when someone writes "excellent knowledge" just starting the research or just switching the field of research. You'll hold the team back, we'll have false expectations and you won't get a positive experience. Funny or not - choosing "excellent" does not necessarily puts you in the top applicants list.

-> It's almost impossible to match the experiences 100% - be prepared to support the team members in learning once you see someone is struggling. Summer School is a teamwork and networking event, be ready to communicate and enjoy the time together! Usually it's a great opportunity to find friends and collaborators.

We are glad to welcome YOU!
