The IBE student group is an organization formed by all PhD and Master students conducting research at IBE. It was created in 2012 to provide the IBE student community with a forum for students to share their experience and express their worries, and also to actively contribute to our doctoral training, and to ensure adequate working conditions for current and future students.
- Representation, to be a common voice for the student community;
- Integration, by establishing active communication channels within the different areas of the institute and introducing new student to the institute, its members and its organization;
- Participation, enhancing active participation in the institute's activities and taking part in some of the institute's decisions;
- Education, by organizing courses, book/journal clubs, seminars, and symposia.
The IBE Student Group holds regular monthly meetings, and has two student representatives (elected annually, gender-balanced). IBE Student Group Representatives as of 2019: Paula Esteller & Maria Bogaerts
