    An embryonic and exciting novel collaboration between the associations of young researchers from Imagine (YR2I), Institut Cochin (JeCCo), Institut Pasteur (StaPa) and Institut Curie (ADIC) is on! The collaboration is entitled: Young researchers Union Meetings in Paris -  YUMP!

    To foment the communication among the different institutes, a first meeting was organized on April 3rd 2019 at Institut Curie. During the event, several students from the different research institutes participated in a session of flash-talks of 3-5 min each, and afterwards all the participants shared a cocktail to get to know each other and create a bigger and stronger network. Since then, three more events have been organized at Institut Cochin, Institut Pasteur and Institut Imagine. 

    Future events will be organized very soon so stay tuned if you do not want to miss them!
