First iDiv Scientific Retreat
After two exciting years of building up our research centre, the arrival of scientists from all over the world and six appointed professors, iDiv celebrated its first scientific retreat on 6 November 2014. The event took place at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ).
After an introduction talk the event started with scientific speed dating sessions in which the participants represented their research topics. In the afternoon poster presentations of the iDiv research platforms were held and the scientists came up with new ideas for joint projects. One goal of this one-day-retreat was to provide everyone with an overview of the scientific work at iDiv. Furthermore the participants explored ideas for new collaborations for the research centre.
