BIGSSS Summer Retreat 2018 › view all

May 23 - May 25, 2018
Gut Ankelohe, Bad Bederkesa,

The second semester of the newest cohort of BIGSSS PhD fellows is marked by the Summer Retreat, a two-day event where fellows present their dissertation projects to a cross-disciplinary audience. The BIGSSS Summer Retreat traditionally takes place at Gut Ankelohe, a historic farmstead between Cuxhaven and Bremerhaven, where BIGSSS fellows, postdocs and faculty enjoy productive scientific discussions and team-bonding and leasure time activities.

This year, we are especially excited to host some of our alumni for a panel discussion and workshop with our current PhD fellows - an excellent opportunity for some early career counseling!

Additional highlights of this year's retreat is the annual soccer match of faculty vs. fellows.
