Happy New Year


ICES logo_ISPRDear doctoral students,

At the end of 2021 we are still learning how to design efficient crisis management in our private and professional lives due to stubborn presence of the COVID-19 pandemic. This new normal opened so many questions, not new, but so often ignored or pushed under the carpet (solidarity, collaborative actions in order to achieve goals of obvious priority – stay alive and healthy, appreciate knowledge).

All of us are connected in a venture of developing new knowledge (through your doctoral research) and building a responsible and engaged  society, i.e. enterprising society aiming to achieve wellbeing for everyone.

The last day of 2021 is a perfect moment to remind ourselves of unfinished businesses that we have and commit ourselves to a ’to do’ list for 2022, on which working on your doctoral thesis has a very high priority. Identifying gaps in knowledge and exploring the ways how to build new knowledge with the highest research integrity is a platform on which we will always collaborate.

On behalf of our ICES team, I wish you a lot of curiosity, enthusiasm and persistence, but above all health and satisfaction with your decisions.
Count always on us,

Slavica Singer
