From May 11 – 13, 2022 the Project Leader and Members of the SFB1423 meets at the Hotel Kloster Nimbschen (Grimma).
The program was fullfilled with short 10min Presentations of all subprojects, Poster sessions, Task Force Meetings and Special Guest Talks. Furthermore, the Board Meeting, the Project Leader Meeting and the Doctoral Meeting took place.
The main focus of the Retreat was on knowledge transfer among the subprojects. Doctoral students, Postdocs and Project Leaders held detailed discussions during the presentations and on the posters. There was also an intensive exchange of ideas and progress on the task forces. The Retreats are held twice a year and serve to network and intensify the research collaboration.
The SFB1423 awards six prizes for outstanding scientific and creative poster presentations of its doctoral students. Each of the six Poster Awards is endowed with a monetary value of 100 EUR. The prizes were awarded at the retreat and goes to:
