Consortium on Individual Development


Looking back: SAB-meeting and CID symposium

On April 19-21, 2018 we organized our fourth Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) meeting and CID symposium. And we were proud to held our first CID retreat!

19 April: SAB-Meeting

On April 19 the Steering Committee was honoured to welcome four of our Scientific Advisory Board members: Jay Belsky (Davis, USA), BJ Casey (New York, USA), Mark Johnson (London, UK), and Nick Martin (Queensland, Australia). With the beautiful set of Huize Molenaar (Utrecht), they discussed the progress of the consortium and the plans for the upcoming years. The SAB members were impressed by the reports and presentations on the four work packages. They recognized clear progress and areas of opportunity for CID to have an even greater impact.

20 April: CID Symposium

On April 20 we were happy to welcome around 65 CID researchers and people interested on our fourth CID symposium at Paushuize, Utrecht. We look back at a beautiful day. There were great talks followed by interesting discussions lead by PIs and members of our Scientific Advisory Board. There was a successful meet-the-expert lunch in which junior researchers had the change to discuss their projects with our senior scientists. And of course, we had a lovely concluding high tea.
