Excursion to the European Parliament

Visiting the European Parliament - the voice of European Union citizens - is a great way to get an impression about its work and about its impact on both Europe and the world.

On July 4th 2017 the Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) of the ITN NeuroGut as well as two ESRs of the ETN OcuTher ( were guests of Peter Simon (MEP) at the European Parliament in Strasbourg. Mr. Simon first gave an introduction to his parliamentary work followed by a vivid discussion about several aspects of European politics in response to questions asked by the ESRs (topics discussed: e.g. After Brexit - under what conditions will EU citizens live in the UK in the next years? What are the implications if Catalonia will become independent from Spain?).

The highlight of our excursion was the visit of the EP hemicycle, where we could follow for one hour the plenary session held. We were lucky to hear the statement on the EU defence plan and the future of Europe by Federica Mogherini, the current High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission.

NeuroGut Training Course Entrepreneurship Academy

People exposed to entrepreneurship frequently express that they have more opportunity to exercise creative freedoms, higher self esteem, and an overall greater sense of control over their own lives. Entrepreneurship is not only about having students who start their own businesses, it's about students who set their own goals in life, and figure out means to achieve them.
