“Danone Nutricia Research employees came from France and The Netherlands to meet us in Ireland. We feel honored to participate in this career workshop held by Danone Nutricia Research during the summer school. The interactive group work was very interesting and in a very friendly and pleasant atmosphere. It was a great experience and I’m very happy”
