“I had the opportunity to discuss my research and findings with international and interdisciplinary scholars”
By Solveig Lena Hansen, Eurolife Short-term Research Exchange Program Grantee (2018/2019) from the University Medical Center Göttingen at the Medical University of Innsbruck
The benefit of my research stay in Innsbruck was to receive interdisciplinary feedback on the main concepts of multimodality and their applicability in other fields of public health communication. The generous and perfectly organized stay with Prof. Gabriele Werner-Felmayer opened up for this possibility. Various peer meetings, joint lunches, and get together with Prof. Werner-Felmayer, her lab members and interdisciplinary colleagues made my stay both academically inspiring and personally convenient.
