Annual Retreat

Each year the VBC students organize a retreat at a location outside Vienna. The aim of the retreat is to facilitate discussion about scientific topics related to different aspects of science. This is an opportunity for students to interact on a personal and professional level.

In order to create a friendly environment, the retreat takes place at a hotel or other venue outside of Vienna. It normally lasts two days, during which there are scientific sessions and social activities.

All Vienna Biocenter PhD students are actively encouraged by their supervisors to attend the retreat which has proved to be very popular over the last years.
