According to the motto “Eat&Meet” all Dresden projects met for exchange and discussion on December, 10th. PhD students presented their work and at the same time exercised holding a presentation. The broaden feedback and questions from PIs and supervisors enabled them to widen the perspective beyond the current state of their research, finding solutions for overcoming possible current obstacles. Many thanks especially to Claudia Peitzsch, Franziska Knopf and Ben Wielockx for their active support giving room for visionary ideas! As µbone promotes young researchers during the three years of funding it has been a great opportunity to expand the research experience of each single PhD project.
