The summer school spans three full days. The CRC 958 project leaders present current topics and concepts from their specific research field. New insights into the research of the collaborate research centre and the opportunity to get in contact with the scientists of other projects and fellow PhD students are important goals of our summer schools.
The Summer Schools 2013 and 2014 were combined with a retreat held in the format of poster presentation and a series of short talks.
