SAIL Retreat 2023

Last week was an important milestone for the SAIL research network as we came together for our first annual retreat. Away from our usually digital interactions, the retreat provided us with a unique opportunity for face-to-face discussions and sharing.

On the first day, PhD students presented their research projects, which sparked insightful discussions that continued during the coffee breaks.

In addition to the academic discussions, we planned the year ahead together on the second day of the retreat, reflecting on our progress and developing strategies for the future. The retreat not only provided us with an opportunity to assess project progress, but also a platform to finally put a face to the digital names we interact with.

The two days of the retreat were very inspiring and gave us a positive outlook for future collaboration. This experience has reinforced our belief that face-to-face meetings are of great value and we wholeheartedly recommend these events to increase the momentum of research projects.

We would like to thank everyone who attended the retreat and showed us with their presentations how much potential there is in our network!
