UCDR Retreat 2018 - Les Ateliers des Tanneurs

The broad goal of the 2 days annual retreat was to discuss our overall mission, ongoing and future research lines, think about the way we work and how to improve our performance.

Principal investigators presented their research goals, current status of the work, medium- to long-term plans, publications in the making, etc. Fellows presented ongoing projects with most relevant achievements in the last year(s), and future plans.

In addition to these presentations, we had general topics for round table discussion. These included: review of current funding, funding opportunities, collaborations between groups, standard of the work and professionalism, safety and laboratory norms, new methods/technologies/models, reaching out to stakeholders and science communication, and career paths (in/outside academia).
