Schöntal Workshops

The aim of the Schöntal Workshop is to bring PhD students from different areas of STRUCTURES together to engage in discussion over topics that go beyond the standard curriculum of a lecture.
16 students and two invited experts, who offer their expertise whenever needed will participate in the workshop.
The workshop consists of discussion rounds which are conducted by the participants and provide an environment for discussing.
