Every year, StaPa organizes a scientific interdepartmental retreat. This meeting of young researchers and invited speakers is held outside of campus and generally lasts 3 days. This provides the opportunity for young researchers to present their work through talks and poster presentations, connect with fellow scientists and engage potential interdisciplinary collaborations in a relaxing atmosphere. To release pressure and reinforce social interactions, leisure activities are organized ensuring that everyone has a great time.
This year for the first time the retreat was held in Brno, Czech Republic and was joint together with ADIC and CEITEC, the students' association of the Institut Curie and the Central European Institute of Technology in Brno.
