Students and researchers at an early stage of their career make up an important part of the scientific community. By exchanging their knowledge and innovative ideas across disciplines, they contribute to the development of new structures and connections between the various research fields. The HBP Education Programme has introduced HBP Student Representatives, who speak for the Project's student community in the HBP Education Programme Committee, as well as HBP Student Ambassadors, who represent each Workpackage of the project and serve as a mouthpiece between the Student Community and the Student Representatives.
