MGSE PhD Student Retreat, 24 – 26 October 2016, Carolinensie
The first MGSE PhD Student Retreat took place on 24 - 26 October 2016 at the marine biological tideland station of the WWU in Carolinensiel along the tidelands of Lower Saxony. It brought together the PhD student community to present their projects and exchange experiences and knowledge in a focused but nevertheless enjoyable atmosphere. To inspire the PhD students and give them valuable feedback, MGSE PIs Joachim Kurtz, Jürgen Gadau, and Sebastian Leidel joined the event. Furthermore, Tobias Krause from the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute in Celle was invited as external speaker to provide additional input. Science apart, the participants enjoyed some time playing games or exploring the beautiful area around the station. Thanks to everybody who participated! We are looking forward to the next retreat.
