Additional informations:

Like last year all RIGeL sections will have joint Summer Schools, including PhD students of BIOMEDIGS (Biomedical International Graduate School of the University Hospital). These should increase the interaction between the sections and will help you to meet new people and get insight to new scientific areas. Since there will be participants from all different sections of RIGeL, please try to keep your talks and posters as general and easy to understand as possible.

In the Summer Schools you will have the opportunity to get an overview of the different groups of the CBB, Biomedicine, Neurobiology and MEE sections, exchange data and get new inputs and ideas for your projects. Moreover, in a relaxed environment you can practice to present your data, to review others and to chair a scientific session. Thus, besides the presentation of your projects you will be given the opportunity to be chairpersons of scientific sessions. The chairpersons will be drawn by lot among all participants. Besides from scientific exchange participants will get to know each other more personally.

In order to improve our capacity of teamwork as well as our personal skills, different events will be offered additionally to the scientific program on the first day of both Summer Schools. We will keep you updated about the choices of soft skill courses and team building events once all the organizing work is done!

Please remember that every RIGeL PhD student has to participate actively in two RIGeL Summer Schools (1x poster, 1x talk) during her/his PhD in order to get the required RIGeL credit points. New PhD students have the possibility to present their research plan by a poster!

A bus transfer will be organized for both Summer Schools. Please note that even participants of the Summer Schools who do not want to attend the team building event or the soft skill courses have to arrive at the Summer School venue at latest in the afternoon on the first day. The use of private vehicles cannot be reimbursed!

We highly recommend taking the chance and participating in this year's Summer Schools and are looking forward to seeing you all at one of the Summer Schools!

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
