Editorial

Dear SENSE member,

A watched pot never boils. Please feel inspired to read this newsletter to flavour your PhD programme to your taste. Do you want a better taste of mindful scientific writing, applied statistics or biobusiness? Or do you have bigger fish to fry, such as participating in the WaterCampus business challenge? Even though COVID-19 measures have become stricter again in the Netherlands, most organisations know how to organize courses and events in a flexible way by now. This means that we can serve you a wide variety of courses and events, which can make you the cream of the crop. And if you want more food for thought, please visit the SENSE website for interesting news related to climate and environment. The content is selected carefully by SENSE officer Marjolijn Dannenburg, who is increasingly working for SENSE again after a period of illness. We hope she will be full of beans again in the coming months, but proof is in the pudding. 

For those of you who graduate this month, we hope you will stay cool as a cucumber and can experience the ceremony as a beautiful icing on your PhD cake.

Do you wonder why we nourish you with so many food-related sayings to this editorial? It will be World Food Day on the 16th of October! Our actions are our future, so feel encouraged to make use of the SENSE network and see what you can do. 

Kind regards, 

 
SENSE Office
