The PhD retreat was started as a way to foster interactions between all of the students of the Biozentrum, regardless of focal area or year in the program. It is an opportunity for students to share their work, talk about science and meet other students from the Biozentrum. The retreat program consists of student talks, keynote speakers, poster sessions and socializing – and not surprisingly, past retreats were a huge success, with up to 80 PhD students attending. If you are interested in helping to organize the retreat, please contact the organizing committee.
The 3-day event takes place every year since 2009 in the early summer months. All PhD students eligible to participate will receive a registration link by email months in advance.
Each participant is asked to present his/her research work in form of a poster or a short oral presentation. After each successful participation to a PhD retreat, students receive 1 CP.
Details on the current PhD Retreat can be found on the website of the PhD Student Association.
