  • Email from Nick Goldman
    • NG sent an email to Christophe and Luis, about concerns from the EBI group leaders. They seem unhappy that some postdocs go to our events without warning them. Christophe and Luis replied in a nice way, emphasizing that (i) all our events are public and broadly advertised, (ii) we are not asking postdocs to hide those events from their managers, (iii) we are not responsible for the lack of communication within some teams
