“The Santander Mobility Fund allowed me to present my master’s thesis on nanocrystal semiconductors at a prestigious conference in Sevilla, Spain. Thanks to the direct contact with experts in the field, I gained a new perspective on my findings and was able to supplement them with important aspects in a publication. Most of all, it allowed me to expand my personal network and helped me secure a doctoral position as part of a European research network at an institute in Spain.”

David Tiede, Faculty of Physics
