Panel B: Retreat successfully completed

As the first DoSChem panel, panel B  (Bio- and Environmental Analytics & Food Chemistry and Physiology) has successfully accomplished its first scientific retreat which took place on 20.10.-22.10.21 in Illmitz, Burgenland and was masterful organized by:

  • Assoz. Prof. Marc Pignitter (Physiological Chemistry)
  • Nina Nicole Troppmair (Analytical Chemistry/ Ahrends group)
  • Maria Fernanda Cervantes Recalde (Physiological Chemistry/Somoza group)
  • Veronika Fitz (Analytical Chemistry/Köllensperger group)

The focus of the retreat was dedicated to strengthen the interdisciplinary research across DoSChem promoting our “New Ideas” program.

The two days were full of discussions with plenty of opportunities for finding a “matching” collaboration partner or have a spark for student-driven new synergetic projects across research groups.

DoSChem is explicitly grateful to Mag. David Zuser from the Research Services and Career Development of the University of Vienna for his workshop about the importance and long ranged advantages of collaborative initiatives at the early career step.
