Editorial

Dear member of the SENSE community,
 
The summer holidays comes to an end. We hope you found ways to energize, even when you continued to work on your PhD during these months. One of the best ways still is, as we discovered at the A1 event this last Thursday, to meet each other face to face; even if that is at 1.5 meters away. It was great to see all the people that were able to meet in Ede!

The next A1 course, the October 2020 version, will be organized mainly online from 26-30 October. You will be able to register for this course via de SENSE website by the end of next week. But, we will make sure we will organize an opportunity to meet physically as well, probably somewhere in November. In the meantime, we are also looking into ways of making it easier to stay in touch with each other online. New tools are making it easier to stay connected; so we should make use of this. Hopefully, by organizing physical meet ups, and online meet ups, we can keep each other’s energy levels higher than when we feel we are on our own. After all, one of the great benefits of SENSE is to keep meeting and supporting each other.
