This is what they said:

“The SPECIES scholarship was a great opportunity for me to get to know and collaborate with a different research group in the field of evolutionary computation. The 3-month format allows for deep and productive discussions while also leaving time to explore the culture of the host country.”

“The┬áSPECIES Scholarship has given me a great opportunity to gain valuable experience by working on a real-world project. Being a part of a third-world country, we usually do not have access to such a program!”

“I am very grateful to have received the SPECIES scholarship, first of all it was an incentive to continue to have interesting and valuable experiences during my PhD career, despite the difficult time period due to the pandemic. As for the experience itself, the internship at the COSYS-ESTAS research group at the University Gustave Eiffel, allowed me to gain a lot of insight into the research work as well as to widen my network and learn more about my field of research.”
