Volunteers are one of the two main actors of IVY, guess who is the other actor? Of course: host organizations! Curious to know more about “being on the other side”? What was the experience for our mentors Greta, Filippo and Alice from Eurac Research? Here are some questions you always wanted to ask, but you never dared to!
Every country has its own coffee: espresso, Filterkaffee, Irish coffe. Beyond the research, which was the impact of the cultural exchange in the team work?
Greta: Birgit and I were connected through our gluten free lunches, together with another colleague working on the GaYA project. We broke the ice when I explained her the lunch options at Eurac. She replied: “Ah ok, you know, I am bit complicated…” And I thought: It seems familiar to me J
Alice: We learned a lot about Polish wodka!
Eurac Research is looking forward to host new volunteers. Do you want to be the next one? Stay tuned!
