Science cruise along the Elbe River

2017.08.17 – Pavel and Edlyn took part in DRESDEN-concept’s Wissenschaftsfahrt (Science Cruise). They joined other fellow researchers (from MPI-CBG and around Dresden) to celebrate Dresden as an outstanding city for science and culture.

DRESDEN-concept (Dresden Research and Education Synergies for the Development of Excellence and Novelty) is a research alliance that aims to “realize synergies in research, teaching, infrastructure and administration”. MPI-CBG is among the many partners of this network. For more information, visit: www.dresden-concept.de/en/home.html

The evening was filled with mingling with scientists, a speech from Dr. Eva-Maria Stange (the Saxon State Minister of Science and Fine Arts), enjoying music from a live band, and taking in the beautiful landscapes along the Elbe River.
