On March 3rd to 5th, the first meeting of the six PEERS of the second cohort took place in beautiful Ticino in an old chocolate factory called Cima Citta. Due to the current situation, unfortunately not all of our cohort were able to travel to Ticino therefore we worked in a hybrid format. Four of our PEERS were able to attend on site and two of them attended via Zoom. The intent of the first meeting was about sharing, aiming to present the individual research projects to the group for the first time, to receive feedback from the group, to cook, to walk and to get to know each other.
