The UPSC group leaders met in Skeppsvik for a lunch-to-lunch retreat on June 13th and 14th 2019. Sixteen PIs joined the retreat and discussed subjects related to UPSC’s strategy, investments for new infrastructure and upcoming recruitments of new group leaders to cover retirements.
Carolin Grabbe from the SLU Grants Office informed about funding opportunities for research, mobility and postdoc career development. Many ideas were brought forward at the retreat, especially regarding future recruitments. The PI-retreat was a welcome and appreciated opportunity for dialog and exchange of opinions and will be repeated on a yearly basis.
