CRC-internal events

The CRC has organised several events to promote intensive exchange between all projects and CRC staff.

CRC retreats

The CRC organises an annual retreat to work together on the development of the project. In addition to presenting current work from the subprojects, the retreat is aimed at identifying common cross-sectional topics and promoting young researchers. Much of the retreat uses a workshop format, in which CRC members from all three areas meet. The plenary sessions address general topics relevant to everyone, such as gender and equality.
