Ph.D. Retreat 2018

The 2018 Ph.D. Retreat took place from June 3rd to June 6th at the Eibseehotel. Located directly at the beautiful Eibsee, at the foot of the Zugspitze, the hotel offered everything – tranquility, recreation, lake and mountain activities, just to mention few.
In addition to the presentations of the Ph.D. projects, we had the opportunity to listen to talks given by PD Dr. Felix Schönbrodt from the LMU’s Department Psychology, who talked about the importance of Open Science. Prof. Anne-Laure Boulesteix from the IBE discussed the concept of “evidence-based” statistical research.
Thanks to the LMU’s consortium partnership with the Zugspitze’s UFS – Schneefernerhaus (https://schneefernerhaus.de/startseite.html) – we had the opportunity to attend an exclusive and highly informative tour through this scientific research station, which is, by the way, the highest elevated research station in Germany, located directly below the summit of the Zugspitze. It was a great experience and quite an adventure taking the gondola cable car, which was newly opened in December 2017!
