PhD Retreat

The PhD retreat was started as a way to foster interactions between all of the students of the Biozentrum, regardless of focal area or year in the program. It is an opportunity for students to share their work, talk about science and meet other students from the Biozentrum. The retreat program consists of student talks, keynote speakers, poster sessions and socializing – and not surprisingly, past retreats were a huge success, with about 70-80 PhD students attending. If you are interested in helping to organize the retreat, please contact the organizing committee.

The 10th PhD Retreat will take place in Engelberg from June 7th to 9th, 2018.
Please find more information on the PhD retreat website.
