Spaces Available in 2 Day YIN-"Scientific Writing Retreat"

Postdocs who are members of KHYS are invited to register for this two day writing retreat hosted by YIN. Often research results are already on the table, but not yet published because of daily commitments. To counteract this, YIN offers a room, good food, a nice environment for a break walk, and, if needed, an English writing coach to provide support. The event will take place on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, and Thursday, December 1, 2022, both days from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on-site in r ä u m e, Linkenheimer Allee 8, 76131 Karlsruhe.
