Growing Up In NeuroEconomicS
The GUINNES Series: Unexpected and personal interviews
The GUINNES events are live, free-flowing, informal, and personal interviews with senior academic scientists, that are open to anyone, from MSc students to PI’s that are society members.
GUINNES is neither about science nor about giving or receiving generic career advice, but about each interviewee’s personal path – the behind-the-scenes, whether generalizable or not. Interviewees will share their doubts, angsts, failures, and difficult decisions, but also the great experiences and joy they have faced throughout your career.
