RIGeL Summer School

Registration period:  28.03.-11.04.2022

Registration link: will be available on the RIGeL wesite (https://www.rigel-regensburg.de/index.php?browse=88&sub=91) during the registration period

Further information:

This year's first Summer School will take place from 23 to 25 June 2022 in the monastery of Niederalteich (https://www.abtei-niederaltaich.de/gaeste-tagungshaus), the second one from 15 to 17 September 2022 in the monastery of Kostenz (https://erholung.barmherzige-kostenz.de/).

The registration period for both Summer Schools will be from 28 March to 11 April 2022. RIGeL PhD students, who have started their PhD earlier than August 2020, have the chance to register first for one of the both Summer Schools from 21 to 27 of March 2022. Please note, that only PhD students already accepted for RIGeL can register for the Summer Schools! Due to the limited places in both Summer Schools we also kindly ask you to register only for one of the Summer Schools!

During registration you can choose, in which Summer School you want to participate. Each section has a limited contingent of places according to the size of the section. If the places of your section are fully booked, please register in the waiting list below the registration link! During registration please take care of the correct choice of your section!!! and the participation form! The registration is on a first come, first served basis.

Please send your abstract (max. 1500 characters in a Word file!) for poster and talk (10 min + 5 min discussion) until 25 May 2022 for the June Summer School and until 15 August 2022 for the September Summer School to Rigel.Summerschool@ur.de.

Like in the last years all RIGeL sections will have joint Summer Schools, including PhD students of BIOMEDIGS (Biomedical International Graduate School of the University Hospital). These should increase the interaction between the sections and will help you to meet new people and get insight to new scientific areas. Since there will be participants from all different sections of RIGeL, please try to keep your talks and posters as general and easy to understand as possible!

In the Summer Schools you will have the opportunity to get an overview of the different groups of the CBB,  Biomedicine, Neurobiology and MEE sections of RIGeL as well as the BIOMEDIGS graduate school of the Medical Faculty, exchange data and get new inputs and ideas for your projects. In both Summer Schools we will have guest speakers who will give an insight in their career path and job experience after their PhD. Moreover, in a relaxed environment you can practice to present your data, to review others and to chair a scientific session. Thus, besides the presentation of your projects you will be given the opportunity to be chairpersons of scientific sessions. The chairpersons will be drawn by lot among all participants. Besides from scientific exchange participants will get to know each other more personally.

On the first day of each Summer School a team event will be offered. In the Summer School in June we will have a canoe tour on the Daube. In the Summer School in September we will have a team event in the climbing park in Sankt Englmar in the Bavarian Forest. In this team event also those can participate who have fear of heights or do not like to climb.

Please remember that every PhD student has to participate actively in two RIGeL Summer Schools (1x poster, 1x talk) during her/his PhD in order to get the required RIGeL credit points.

A bus transfer will be organized for both Summer Schools.  Please note that even participants of the Summer Schools who do not want to attend the team event have to arrive at the Summer School venue at latest in the afternoon on the first day. A travel by private car cannot be reimbursed!

We are looking forward to seeing you in one of our Summer Schools!
