Science and Socializing in a nice atmosphere

Every year we organize at least one retreat and minisymposia focussing on certain research fields of our Graduate School. On these events our PhD students can exchange ideas with each other and get advice on special topics from senior scientists in a relaxed natural environment outside Ulm. Moreover, the retreats are a great opportunity to get to know each other away from work and to relax in a pleasant atmosphere. Some retreats are held together with our international partner institutions.
