I have participated in many NIVA courses during the last 10 years, and it has always been a pleasant experience, not only due to the high-quality scientific content but also the warm atmosphere, great locations and social programs. ”

Lars L. Andersen

Professor, NRCWE; Adjunct Professor, Aalborg University, Denmark

One of the highlights of my NIVA workshop experience was to interact with people in different locations and time zones.

Research Project Coordinator, KTP Associate, University Of Huddersfield

As always – excellent, high quality, thought-provoking and informative presentations. Thank you for making this available. I enjoyed attending and hearing a European perspective on this issue. You raise some interesting questions on issues affecting young people in the workplace and how we may identify those who are both struggling and are at risk of struggling to better support them to thrive in the modern workplace.”
