"I feel privileged to take part in CEPLAS. The graduate school is very well structured and organized. A close collaboration between the institutions and regular meetings among multidisciplinary research groups offers a perfect platform for young researchers to exchange their ideas and to interact with scientific experts. CEPLAS also creates equal opportunity to women and international students as well."
