Beyond our social & sporting events and ski weekends, we are proud of our more unusual "Research Retreats". Once a year we go away as a group and stay for a week at a lakeside in Austria or Bavaria. We use the mornings to train the skills that you need to succeed in science but which most people never get taught, and use the afternoons/evenings for undistracted paper writing, followed by social evenings and the hotly contested poster/presentation challenges.

Research Retreat 2
Our second Traunkirchen retreat week covered preparing and presenting talks, with sidelines on poster prep, gender equality in science, image handling and figure assembly.

Research Retreat 1
Our kick-off retreat, a couple of months after the start of our Emmy Noether funding (thanks DFG!).
Retreat 1 tackled paper structuring and figure prep, with sidelines on data processing & stats, collaborations and group presentation practice.
