What past participants say about the DEST training!


“The course really exceeded my expectations. I really got a whole week of one-on-one training – amazing!”


“I made lots of new contacts and I am already looking at the possibility of collaboration and even doing a post-doc”


“It is most deeply appreciated, the hospitalities that I received from the hosts are outstanding. It is not just the facilitation of the learning aspect, but the whole cultural experience.” 


“Very unique opportunity to study morphology and taxonomy for two weeks with almost no other distractions.” 


“I cannot think of any way to make this course better.  I wish I could have stayed longer and continued my studies because I was learning so much every day.”


“I would strongly recommend getting this kind of training to any researcher who is considering a career in Taxonomy.”




…. and of course there were some negative comments… but very very few…
