Annual IMPRS Symposium

IMPRS students and faculty at the 17th IMPRS symposium in Dornburg.
Michael Easson, Andrew O'Donnell, Sandra Lackner, Anja Meents and Mohammed Khallaf won presentation awards at the 17th IMPRS Symposium.

The IMPRS organizes a symposium every year, which usually takes place at the Old Castle in Dornburg.

At this two-day event, PhD students present their research with talks or posters, give each other feedback and receive feedback from IMPRS faculty. They have the chance to win travel awards for their presentations and invite two external guest scientists.

It is the main IMPRS event for scientific exchange across disciplines and socializing!
