EIPIN Team Reports

Student participation and networking is at the heart of the EIPIN experience. Due to the small number of participants, all students actively contribute to discussions by preparing questions as teams. These teams, comprised of students from each partner program to enhance networking, are tasked with drafting a research report on a topic relating to the conference theme. In order to further incentivize excellent research, the EIPIN Partners have dedicated themselves to publishing the most outstanding team reports on the EIPIN website each year.
