On Wednesday 22 November, GTI fellows, tutors, and friends of CEBioS gathered for the annual GTI Day. This was an excellent opportunity to present their work and research carried out as part of their GTI scholarship in Belgium, their experience as a trainee and as a tutor, and to chat together in a convivial atmosphere.
After the presentations, Wouter Dekoninck took us on a tour of the entomology collection at the Institute of Natural Sciences.
