IDK End-of-the-Year Celebration

A set table with cookies and decorations. In the background PhDs of the IDK

The year is coming to an end

Time to recapitulate what’s been achieved during the first few months, and what lies ahead, in the IDK:

A workshop on food and agriculture with artist Martin Hablesreiter. A trip to the Schneefernerhaus to learn about climate research. The second IDK Colloquium.

Most of all, we enjoyed home-made Christmas cookies and a sing-along concert by IDK speaker Matthias Schmidt and PhD candidate Christian Schnurr and many inspiring conversations.
