Annual IMPRS Symposium

Dornburg Castles
IMPRS students at the 15th IMPRS symposium

The IMPRS organizes a symposium every year, which usually takes place at the Dornburg Castles. At this two-day event, the PhD students present posters or do presentations on their current projects. This way, the symposium is meant to help students improve their presentation and communication skills. Moreover, two external speakers suggested by the doctoral students are invited.
