BIOME 2023 retreat


Impression BIOME retreat.

During the Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience retreat 2023 in the White Loft in Düsseldorf, members presented their dissertation projects in form of a digital poster. However, before presenting their work, members had to introduce oneself to the group by using a digital „Bio Sketch“ comprising informations of „Education“, „Skills“, and an „About Me“- section. Finally, they had to explain „Why I pursue a Phd/MD?“.

The creativity regrading the „Bio Sketch“ was very inspiring and funny, the presentation oft the dissertation projects very precise and informative, causing a lot of valuable feedback from students to students. After this intense exchange of scientific information, Psychologist Beatrix Stahlberger gave an impressive interactive keynote talk on the subject "Emotional Intelligence - Personal + Social Competence" which was followed by a workshop + coaching of difficult situations you may face during you doctorate thesis. The retreat ended with a „get together“ and a nice dinner + drinks.
