Many of the R&D assignments at CHILL are carried out by students. This is beneficial in two ways: you get a competitive rate for your R&D assignment and students get practical experience in a real-life work environment. We work with Communities for Development in order to ensure the quality of the projects and to provide students with adequate supervision.
Each project is carried out by a team known as a Community for Development. Ideally, these teams consist of three students, one coach (usually an experienced researcher), and one experienced lab technician. The latter also serves as lab coordinator, collaborates on projects, and is responsible for the daily supervision of the students.
