Interdisciplinary exchange, scientific discussion and networking

In the fast-paced day-to-day routine of the laboratory, intensive scientific discussions in a relaxed atmosphere tend to occur far too seldom. Retreats therefore offer you the opportunity to exchange ideas intensively over several days with other scientists and graduate students about a scientific topic or a special method and to discuss your own work. Retreats are organized by the Institutes/Research Units. HELENA Equivalents (HE) will be given to all participants. The Graduate Student Office will calculate the number of HEs based on the duration and workload of the retreat.
