You also get to work on interesting topics such as digital transformation, data science and data management. Finally, thanks to the training in Spain, I have met many colleagues from all over Europe and so have managed to extend my international network. Afterwards there are also regular events where you can get to know your colleagues in an informal way and exchange knowledge. " Ava Hosseinpour
