Discussion Seven: Clotilde and Jan

Clotilde Pierson, a PhD student at Université Catholique de Louvain, interviewed Jan Wienold.

Conferences are an essential component of science. Jan describes how informal discussion with enthusiastic researchers can lead to new ideas, and suggests that difficult questions after a presentation can lead to better research. 

Jan also raises an issue which should concern us all: “research in the last years is mainly focused on producing very fast results without focussing on the thoroughness”.
