Working on a completely unknown research topic in my group project turned out to be one of the most enriching experiences I had up to now! Learning to work together efficiently and empowering each other were truly the main lessons of these three months. I also realised how relevant the studied topic was, to overcome the societal challenges, and I appreciated the knowledge I gained. I have now joined a company in the telecommunication industry - nothing to do with the group project - but what I learnt from this experience has been useful from the first week!
