“Participating to the ISU was a unique experience. Despite the fact that I had no solid background in ecosystem services modeling, I had the opportunity to explore those “uncharted waters” during the two weeks of intensive training. The interactive courses and team-oriented approach of solving assignments were great ways to get to know with colleagues and collaborate effectively. Not only that I am now “richer” by 20+ friends, but my ISU team and I are still working on our BC3-incubated project, with great potentials. Lecturers seemed to enjoy every minute, and provided happily assistance in every possible aspect, in and out of the class (they even helped us buy football tickets for an Athletic Bilbao match!!). I can’t recall more productive and fun weeks than the ones I had last spring in Bilbao.”
