After many online events, it was finally possible to hold the first retreat in presence on the 08th & 09th of November. Doctoral students and project partners met in Radevormwald. In addition to lectures and poster sessions, possible collaborations and project ideas were discussed. Of course, such a productive meeting should not be complete without an evening together at the bowling alley.
The first RTG 2578 symposium took place on February 22nd and 23rd as an online event. The meeting was a combination of talks by invited guest speakers, presentation of the RTG research projects and 'Meet the Expert' sessions. Here, our guest speakers took the time to answer further questions of the students, project leaders and guests. The presentation of the PhD students' projects took place via talks as well as posters followed by poster discussions in breakout rooms. In addition to our presenting speakers, we had the pleasure of welcoming some of our past seminar speakers and would like to thank them for their time and input during the discussions.
Overall, there was a lot of scientific exchange during the symposium and we would like to thank our 4 speakers: Prof. Dr. Chichung Lie, Prof. Dr. Robert Passier, Prof. Dr. Jörg Fahrer & Prof. Dr. Patricia Boya!
