Judit Petervari, a PhD student from the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences, has been successfully selected for Roche Continents, a programme in which 100 top-talented students from European institutions attend the Salzberg Festival in Austria. Participants will have the opportunity to experience a unique journey exploring sources of inspiration at the intersection of science and art, as well as the creative processes that drive innovation.
Judit have some advice for fellow students: “I'm very happy to have the opportunity to take part in Roche Continents and would urge other students to consider applying to this and any other opportunities you may hear about. If you hear about an event which feels like it was invented for you, you should definitely go for it! An application doesn't cost anything and you become more confident about putting yourself out there for other applications too. I always think of these opportunities as a fun game, where you cannot lose anything but may end up at places and get to know people you could've never done on your own."
Roche Continents is aimed at arts and science students aged between 20 and 29 from European institutions. It enables them to experience contemporary music at the Salzburg Festival and to discover the common ground of creativity in the arts and science through discussion among themselves and with key personalities in both fields.
