From the 24th till the 28th of January, the LUMC organized the Data Ethics winter school on behalf of the Eurolife consortium, an international network consisting of 9 European universities.

We are very proud of the amazing success of the winter school and the exciting responses we’ve had from students. In this article we would like to share the experience of one of the participating students, Jonneke Bouwhuis.
