I feel it’s a privilege to create and lead a community that is making a difference and progress in the international academic scene. We cooperate with international partners from all around the world, while nurturing a growing reputation based on innovation, respect and inclusiveness. I frequently see researchers that are afraid to seek for help outside of their own comfort zone or department, until a problem arises. WAO works to provide, as many resources as possible, for researchers to enhance and enrich their training and academic experience.
