ScaDS PhD Seminar 2016 and Principal Investiator Meeting

08.01.2016 // SCADS

From the January 7th-8th, the first ScaDS-PhD-seminar 2016 took place in Machern, nearby Leipzig. Within the seminar, PhD candidates from or associated with ScaDS got the opportunity to present their research topic and current state of work. The students got feedback from other PhD students as well as from advising Professors and Post-Docs. In the afternoon of the first day, a meeting of the Principal Investigators of ScaDS is taking place.

Program of the ScaDS PhD Seminar 2016

All PhD candidates held interesting presentations on their work. The location, a nice room within a cosy old castle in Machern, was perfect for the event. Outside of the building, we had strong winter temperature, blue sky and sun. Therefore, the walk through the Schlosspark Machern that all participants took on the first day, was a very nice addition to our program. At the end of the ScaDS PhD Seminar 2016, which was the first of its kind for our center, the best speaker of the event was voted. All participants had three votes to select their favorites. We congratulate Nico Hoffmann from Dresden for winning the ScaDS Best-Speaker-Award 2016. With the award, Nico Hoffmann was gifted a book of his own choice.

We would like to thank all PhD students, post-docs, professors and principal investigators for this wonderful experience. It’s safe to say that all attendees had an overall great time with lasting memories for the future.
