On 3rd and 4th of February, 2022 the first iRTG two-day retreat took place. With talks, the young researchers presented the current status of their doctoral project. Everyone received feedback from their fellows on their presentations. At the end of the retreat, the young researchers voted for the best presentation. In this retreat, the Best Presentation Award was won by Veronika König. Vanessa Wirth and Johanna Bräunig took second and third place. In addition to their own talks, Prof. Dr. Bernhard Egger presented as guest speaker “Shape the Future”.
The retreat also included some team building activities like visiting an old castle and a cave. These activities help the researchers to establish better relationships and improve their communication skills.
