  • During the Future Leaders Mentorship Programme I anticipate that my mentor will critically appraise my methods to test CGM devices.
  • I also hope to receive guidance in positioning myself as an (independent) academic in the field of CGM while maintaining strong international collaborations with the industry and other stakeholders.
  • As a member of the academic community I feel we have a responsibility towards valorisation of knowledge. As future leaders should have explicit attention for this, I hope that the programme courses will help me to take this responsibility
