PCDI Postdoc Retreat 2015 (Life Sciences)

Organised far away from work, in a forest in the surroundings of Eindhoven, the 13th edition of the PCDI Postdoc Retreat was again a success. From 25 - 27 March 2015postdocs and final year PhD students in the Life Sciences met each other here to dedicate time to their personal and professional development and career questions. A full programme with lectures, workshops and discussions challenged them to turn their talent into a career. 

Programme overview of the 13th edition

At the crossroads of your career? What choices to make and how to turn your talent into a career that suits you? The PCDI Postdoc Retreat is a 3-day course for last year PhD students and postdocs on professional, personal and career development. 

Three days away from daily obligations and tasks, taking time to reflect, about yourself and the direction to head for. This is what our participants did at the PCDI Postdoc Retreat from 25 - 27 March 2015.

Inspiring lectures, training workshops, discussions and networking sessions, all aimed at identifying skills, exploring the extent of possibilities and setting new priorities towards the future, made up the full programme of this retreat.
